The partnership follows Certific’s announcement that it has raised €7.4m of investment, led by European investment platform Plural, to advance remote medical diagnostics, support product expansion and entry into new markets.
Veriff’s streamlined, AI-powered identity verification technology will provide Certific customers with a simpler and faster process, mitigating fraud risks and building trust within remote medical procedures - diagnostics, patient monitoring and treatment.
There is a growing need for patients to digitally validate their identities as demand rises around the globe for digital health services, such as remote diagnostics, patient monitoring and treatment. This ensures they are linked to the correct medical history, their privacy is protected, and medical providers can avoid instances of malpractice and fraud. Cases of medical identity theft reported to the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rose from approximately 6,800 in 2017 to nearly 43,000 in 2021, a trend being replicated globally.
