Veriff and Certific Partner to Enhance Identity Verification Services for Remote Medical Testing
Veriff announced a partnership with Certific, a remote medical testing platform. The partnership will enhance and streamline Certific's remote medical diagnostics capabilities and support the company's global expansion - Veriff can verify over 10,200 different identity documents from more than 190 different countries and in over 45 languages.

Veriff's streamlined, AI-powered identity verification technology will provide Certific customers with a simpler and faster identity verification process, mitigating fraud risks and building trust within remote medical testing. 

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.

As the use of telehealth and other digital health services continues to rise across the globe, there is a growing need for patients to digitally validate their identities. This ensures patients 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 Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rose from approximately 6,800 in 2017 to nearly 43,000 in 2021, a trend that is being replicated globally.

"The COVID-19 crisis forced companies to go digital overnight to remain competitive. As a result, the demand for secure, remote identity verification has continued to grow globally across industries, including health services," said Kaarel Kotkas, founder and CEO of Veriff. "Veriff's solution, combined with Certific's remote medical testing platform, enables users to more securely and effectively access their personal medical records and telehealth services through advanced biometric identity verification technology, helping to significantly reduce security risk in digital health processes."

Liis Narusk, CEO of Certific, said: "Demand for remote medical services is rising and Veriff's technology will enable us to expand globally and securely, reducing the risk of identity fraud and malpractice on a grand scale. It will make the identity verification process quicker and more convenient for our customers and protect the data and integrity of the platform."
