It turns out he already has a record with another of your facilities, but they called him Rob instead of Robert. The receptionist does not know this, so she makes the appointment anyways. Now you have two of the same patient in your system, with two separate records.
An enterprise master patient index (EMPI) solves some of the biggest, most constant problems that healthcare providers deal with: multiple patient identifiers, duplicate patient records, and poor data quality that inhibit reliable information sharing and often cause unnecessary costs.
We are excited to announce that we are officially an active player in the movement to eliminate these problems. We recently entered into an agreement to offer the KLAS award-winning NextGate EMPI solution.[vc_column fade=”” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][pullquote type=”left”]The EMPI connects the right patient to the right data and coordinates information flow across systems and settings, like EMRs, IHEs, IDNs and ACOs.[/pullquote]The EMPI connects the right patient to the right data and coordinates information flow across systems and settings, like EMRs, IHEs, IDNs and ACOs. Beyond that, it cross-references patient identifiers from different systems and creates a central index of the most trusted patient demographics, allowing for convenient and reliable data exchange and enterprise patient searches.
