Ampamya S, Kitayimbwa JM, Were MC. Performance of an open source facial recognition system for unique patient matching in a resource-limited setting. International journal of medical informatics. 2020 Jun 4;141(141). 104180 p. PMID: 32544824 [PubMed]
The lack of unique patient identifiers is a challenge to patient care in developing countries. Probabilistic and deterministic matching approaches remain sub-optimal. However, affordable and scalable biometric solutions have not been rigorously evaluated in these settings.
