Getting to 100%: Using Big Data to Match Patients Precisely and Cost-Effectively

For health systems and health information exchanges, the average rate of identity duplication is 10%, and the known cost to reconcile a single pair of duplicate records approaches $1,000. These organizations must identify and index patients whose information comes from an increasing number of sources that identify patients inconsistently. 

Current Master Patient Indexing (MPI) solutions, however, are very costly and require extensive implementation times.

Join Brian Wikle of 4medica as he and his data management experts preview a revolutionary Big Data eMPI that is scalable, cost-effective and manageable.

Presentation Highlights:

  • How can you eliminate false positives and false negatives?
  • How can having unlimited amounts of historical data at your fingertips actually improve the accuracy rate of data matching?
  • How do you contain operational and IT costs while your data volume increases?
  • How can you increase speed and accuracy without decreasing matching ability?
Presenter Details:
  • Brian Wikle, 4medica, Sr. Client Executive
  • Gretchen Cole, 4medica, Senior Software Support & Training
  • Gregg Church, 4medica, President
  • Muthu Kuttalingam, 4medica, SVP of Product Development & Technology
