(CBN Global) March 29 -- The Central Hospital of Wuhan has become the first in China to roll out a system for medical insurance payments that uses facial recognition.
One of the biggest bottlenecks affecting the convenient use of medical services through insurance is the inability to pay medical insurance online. Central Hospital of Wuhan seems to have resolved this problem.
Bankcards and facial patterns are bundled to confirm that the person holding the medical insurance card is the same as the cardholder. Subsequent payments only need a dynamic mobile phone verification code to complete payment and co-pays.
