Patient registration is an essential process in every clinic and hospital before services are provided to patients. Usually, patient’s identity card or fingerprint (through a fingerprint scanner) will be requested for identity authentication in order to retrieve medical records of the patient. However, the current global health crisis of COVID-19 pandemic is raising concern on the hygiene and safety of sharing objects or touching surfaces. Same worry is also occurred towards the patient registration interaction process; further, hospitals and clinics are classified as high risk premises. Therefore, a contactless patient authentication for registration using face recognition technology is proposed in this work. In this system, a face is scanned and processed. If the face exists in the database indicating that the subject is an established patient, the patient’s records will be retrieved. Else, a new patient registration will be performed to register a new account. The efficiency of the system is assessed using our self-collected database. Empirical results show that the proposed system is able to attain 94% accuracy. But, an inferior performance is obtained, especially dealing with makeup variation.
