Navigating the patient identification highway in healthcare has never been more complex or more important for the industry. Widely regarded as a critical portal for successful implementation and use of additional health IT tools and platforms, the conundrum of how to achieve accurate patient identification has received renewed attention with the ONC releasing a research report encapsulating recent conclusions from meetings that include stakeholders from all aspects of healthcare. What’s clear is that the industry is at a crossroads.
Hampered by the inability of patient matching technologies to be successfully implemented across the enterprise and searching for answers on how to resolve the serious impediment issue to exchanging health information, the industry is hungry for direction. Additional pressures of the rise in medical identity theft and healthcare fraud along with the ever present need to implement stricter controls to improve patient safety have elevated patient matching to the forefront of issues that can be and must be resolved.
In the spirit of understanding more about the precarious and complex situation that healthcare faces in adopting stricter patient identification and medical data integrity platforms, we are teaming up with Beth Just from Just Associates – an expert in Master Patient Index (MPI) and Enterprise EMPI database knowledge and Health Information Management (HIM) expertise – to offer a free webinar on strategies to adopt patient identification solutions across the enterprise.
The free webinar will be held on Thursday April the 24th from 11am – 12pm EDT. To sign up, please visit this Registration Web Link: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/356073831 for more details on the webinar and the topics we will cover.
