Webinar: Why Patient Matching is your EHR’s Achilles’ Heel
Jun 21 2018
Whether you use an EHR from Epic®, Cerner®, McKesson®, eClinicalWorks®, or another vendor, it has one fatal flaw that is costing your organization money, diminishing care quality, and preventing strategic initiatives. Every EHR struggles with patient matching, and this struggle is becoming insurmountable as organizations integrate new data sources, migrate to single EHR instances, and onboard patient data from newly acquired hospitals and clinics. Luckily, there is a cure.

Webinar: Why Patient Matching is your EHR’s Achilles’ Heel
May 23 2018
Every EHR struggles with patient matching, and this struggle is becoming insurmountable as organizations integrate new data sources, migrate to single EHR instances, and onboard patient data from newly acquired hospitals and clinics. Organizations are forced to either (1) suffer rising duplicate rates, which drastically impact care quality and patient safety, or (2) throw more money at an already substantial EHR investment by hiring a team to manually resolve a growing queue of potential duplicates. Luckily, there is a cure.

Webinar: The Role of Referential Matching in Master Data Management
Apr 25 2018
Health insurance providers increasingly struggle with master data management (MDM) for member/person data. As strategic initiatives require more clinical, socio-economic and behavioral health data, “head-to-head” comparison fails and matching becomes exponentially more difficult.
This webinar explores real-world case studies of how old matching approaches have failed, and why a new approach is needed.
Webinar: Improving Patient Matching in your EHR: A Case Study
Mar 27 2018
EHR systems, while they’ve made great strides in development, still have a foundational component that is far from fantastic: the master patient index (MPI). While many health information management (HIM) professionals hoped EHR systems’ MPIs might solve their patient matching headaches, they’re facing a familiar problem – long task lists of flagged “potential matches” needing review and remediation, and duplicate rates of 20% or higher.
Luckily, there are ways to improve any EHR system’s patient matching performance without disrupting any of its core functionality. Join this webinar to hear how Executive Director of Northeast Georgia’s HealtheConnection, Alan Wills, tackled the patient matching problem with a simple plug-in service.
Webinar: Finding a Solution to Healthcare’s Patient Matching Problem
Feb 28 2018
With errors in patient identification leading to safety risks and increasing the cost of care, patient matching should be a top priority for healthcare leaders. The inability to positively identify patients undermines efforts to improve clinical quality and patient experience, both of which factor highly in value-based care initiatives.
The Pew Charitable Trusts Manager of Health Information Technology Ben Moscovitch and Regenstrief Center for Biomedical Informatics Director Shaun Grannis, MD, MS, FACMI, lead a discussion on the impact of patient matching on utilization, revenue, patient satisfaction and interoperability and potential solutions to the problem.
Webinar: Crawl, Walk, Run: Improve Patient Matching in 3 Easy Steps
Jan 23 2018
Patient matching is at the forefront of the national Health IT conversation, and the ONC and CHIME have both run patient matching competitions in search of a better approach.
But a next-generation approach already exists that organizations can use to dramatically improve their patient matching in three simple steps.
Webinar: Crawl, Walk, Run: Three Real-World Patient Matching Case Studies
Nov 29 2017
Patient matching is at the forefront of the national Health IT conversation and it’s no secret that a new approach to patient matching is sorely needed. Luckily, a next-generation patient matching approach exists that organizations can leverage in three simple steps to dramatically improve their patient matching.
Watch this webinar to learn about this next-generation matching approach, called “Referential Matching,” and to hear about the real-world successes that three large healthcare organizations have seen with Referential Matching.
Webinar: MPIs are dead. Will they be reborn in the cloud?
Oct 31 2017
RIP, Master Patient Indexes. Although not the most sophisticated technologies of their generation, MPIs helped many organizations match patients to their records. But they have reached their limits and organizations have begun to pull their plugs.
But will MPIs be reborn in the cloud? Watch this haunted and Halloween-themed webinar from Verato and RGV HIE to find out.
Webinar: How a Universal MPI Can Solve Payers’ Toughest Match Cases
Oct 24 2017
Until now, payers enjoyed fairly accurate match rates within their MDM solutions. But as member IDs and SSNs become less prevalent across a wide variety of data sources, member data matching is becoming a pervasive problem.
Watch our 30-minute payer-focused webinar to learn about the next generation in MPI technology, and how it can be leveraged to resolve payers’ most difficult match cases.

Webinar: 3 Strategies for Achieving Interoperability
Jun 27 2017
The future of healthcare in the US is based on an assumption that every health IT system can interoperate with every other health IT system—which would enable better care coordination and reduce costs. But how far along are we at actually achieving full interoperability and what can we do to get there?
Join our webinar with the eHealth Initiative to learn about:
- The larger challenge and strategy of achieving interoperability
- How one large health system is achieving interoperability within its own four walls
- Strategies for achieving interoperability not just within an organization, but also between organizations, and with payers, HIEs, and state and federal health agencies
- The newest frontier of interoperability—called “identity interoperability”—and counterintuitive ways that organizations can achieve it
