eQHealth Solutions Selects Verato as Its Master Patient Index Solution

McLean, VA (Feb. 28, 2018) – Verato, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based solutions that enables organizations everywhere to dramatically improve their patient matching, announced today that eQHealth Solutions (eQHealth), a population health management company providing technology solutions and medical management services, will use the Verato Universal™ Master Patient Index (MPI) to ensure eQHealth achieves optimal patient matching performance without the effort required to implement or tune an on-premises MPI solution. The Verato Universal MPI is a cloud-based MPI that leverages Referential Matching to deliver the most accurate patient matching possible at significantly less effort and cost than other MPI solutions.

eQHealth couples a cloud-based, SaaS technology platform with a portfolio of community-based services to deliver high-tech and high-touch population health, care coordination and utilization management solutions. Through Medicare, state Medicaid and commercial payer contracts, eQHealth serves more than 10 million patients annually. eQHealth sought a cloud-based, SaaS MPI solution to plug into their own SaaS technology that would deliver unparalleled accuracy to their platform. The Verato Universal MPI’s SaaS-based approach guaranteed the agility that eQHealth sought, while its unique Referential Matching approach met eQHealth’s exacting standards for accuracy.

“Everyday we work to improve the quality and value of healthcare by using information and collaborative relationships to enable change,” said Glen J. Golemi, President, and CEO of eQHealth. “For us to deliver on this mission, we must be able to swiftly and accurately match the wide range of disparate data our system ingests to inform and guide clinical and operational decision making. The Verato Universal MPI is the cutting-edge technology we need to ensure we elevate our proprietary technology platform without adding undue costs or effort. By easily integrating this SaaS-based Referential Matching MPI with our platform, we will improve our patient matching accuracy and reduce our manual patient matching processes – as a result we should gain some cost efficiencies and enhance our ability to deliver quality healthcare.”

The Verato Universal MPI is pre-populated with pre-mastered and continuously-updated demographic data spanning the entire U.S. population. It incorporates a powerful new matching technology called Referential Matching that leverages this pre-mastered database as an answer key to match and link identities that even world-class probabilistic algorithms can never match. Because of its greater accuracy and ease of implementation, it can support the rapidly emerging patient matching needs that conventional MPIs cannot.

“As the number and diversity of new healthcare data explodes, already struggling MPIs are destined to fail,” said Mark LaRow, CEO of Verato. “We built the Verato Universal MPI to solve the growing patient matching problem by harnessing big data in a groundbreaking Referential Matching approach. Referential Matching is much more accurate than conventional approaches, and best of all it can be easily deployed to make patient matching much better. Any organization can simply plug Verato into its existing technology stack and have access to the most sophisticated MPI at a fraction of the cost of other MPI technologies.”
