Technology use is increasing in healthcare services, creating a concern for privacy, security, accessibility, and sharing of personal information. The issue increases for persons with disabilities. Cognitive, physical, or multiple disabilities make identification of individuals difficult or impossible, thus increasing the need for a caregiver or family member to verify the individual’s identity. The paper will present a conceptual model of knowledge contribution in patient authentication without verbal information exchange through the following factors: authentication with wearable technology, central location for personal information, and an authentication context model direction.
