Yoti offers its identity services for free to healthcare providers

Yoti, digital identity company, is offering its digital identity solutions for free to any public health organisation, emergency service and community initiative tackling COVID-19 (coronavirus).

The services will be available for three months, and will be made available to individual staff and patients.

There are no integration fees, fixed terms, hidden charges or exit fees to help ease financial burdens.

Its decision to make services available for free was to help health services which are handling increased volumes of patients who requite online and in-practice support, as well as onboarding new staff and suppliers.

Yoti helps protect businesses from fraud through identity verification, Its technology verifies government-approved ID documents from more than 185 countries and gives the consumer the control over their data and how it is shared.

The company has built an AI age estimation solution, Yoti Age Scan, which estimates the age of an individual and flags any account where they do not match the stated age.

Yoti CEO Robin Tombs said, “We want to do whatever we can to help individuals and organisations affected by COVID-19. Our technology and team are available to support.”

The National Care Force is a free online platform powered by Florence, a digital marketplace connecting nurses and care homes with jobs. National Care Force was created to help respond to the staff shortages expected to occur during the coronavirus pandemic. It has integrated the Yoti platform to help with onboarding new users.

Florence CEO Charles Armitage said, “We are facing unprecedented challenges across our entire Health and Social Care system. I want to make sure we each do all we can to help to protect and help the most vulnerable in our society. The speed with which the Yoti team came back to us to support in our ID verification requirements was amazing.”

Last year, Yoti collected £8m in its latest funding round which valued the business at £82m.

Yoti is the latest company to offer free services during the pandemic. Jumio is also offering free digital identity services to healthcare providers, while NorthOne is removing account fees for its SME banking clients impacted by the virus.
