Toolkit Biometrics Module

Great discussion today to kick off the development of the Patient Identity Management Toolkit Biometrics Module. Here is the direct link to the Google document. The Community asks for your feedback and input as direct comments in the Google doc (please include your name) or in this thread.

A few initial questions discussed on the call today:

  1. Does the content in the module align with your experiences?
  2. What’s missing?
  3. Is this module helpful?

As a reminder, the Data Use Community requested a toolkit type resource that provides:

  1. Practical guides across key areas of identity management.
  2. A space to learn from others and see progress/examples in other countries.

This biometrics module is the second guide to be included. It outlines considerations in and community lesson learned in implementing biometrics in healthcare and public health programs to support identity management.

The development of this module and the entire Patient Identity Management Toolkit is a group effort! If you have suggestions, additional resources or would like to promote additional calls related to identity management, please share here!

A recording of the November 29th Community meeting on this module will be shared shortly.
