Dynacare partners with SecureKey to improve access to health information

SecureKey Technologies Inc., a provider of federated identity and authentication solutions, announced that Dynacare™, one of Canada's largest providers of health and wellness solutions, has joined the Verified.Me network. Dynacare's participation will make it easier for Canadians to verify their identities as well as gain safer and faster access to their health information.

Verified.Me will be offered as a new option to help users verify their identity when registering for Dynacare Plus, an online and mobile service that patients can use to manage their health remotely. Patients can access and review their laboratory test results, trend them over time and store appointment, vaccination and medication records. They can also synchronize their personal health information with Google Fit and Apple Health, as well as access other health and wellness resources.

Patients currently register for Dynacare Plus by using a PIN code received during their visit to a Dynacare location. With Verified.Me, users can now sign up without having to visit a Dynacare clinic in-person. Patients who use Verified.Me, which will initially be available to Dynacare patients in Ontario, can safely, securely and reliably confirm their identity, expanding accessibility to their health information.

"Taking ownership and managing health should be a priority for Canadians, but it is often avoided due to the complexity associated with the current process to obtain health information," said Greg Wolfond, Founder and CEO, SecureKey Technologies. "In many cases, accessing health information is limited to in-person physician visits that often result in lengthy wait times. By welcoming Dynacare into the Verified.Me network, we are excited to provide more convenient and secure access to health information for patients across Ontario and to equip Canadians with the necessary tools to take charge of their health."

"Joining Verified.Me will allow our Dynacare Plus patients easier and more convenient access to our platform," said Arun Thomas, Vice President, Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, Dynacare. "This improves our ability to help empower Canadians to take ownership of their health and wellness and lead a healthier lifestyle."

Verified.Me utilizes a trusted connection with existing personal identification details, such as a financial institution, to help verify identities, create accounts and access online services from other trusted organizations. The service reduces unnecessary oversharing of personal information by providing consumers the choice of when and with whom their information is shared. It is a more secure alternative to traditional digital identification methods and allows consumers to quickly and safely engage with the online services of their choice.
