About Verato

Verato offers two cloud-based solutions powered by Referential Matching technology that enable you to match and link your patient or customer data across your enterprise with unprecedented ease and accuracy.

Verato Auto-Steward™ is a simple cloud-based plug-in for your EHR, EMPI, or MDM that automatically finds and resolves its missed matches and duplicate records—without disrupting any of your existing processes or IT systems.

The Verato Universal™ MPI is the most accurate, easiest to implement, most secure, and most cost effective EMPI or customer MDM solution on the market. It is a HITRUST-certified SaaS solution that you can deploy in as little as six weeks at any scale.

Both solutions are powered by Referential Matching, the new gold standard in patient matching and customer matching technology. Referential Matching is not simply a better algorithm—it is a completely different approach that is a quantum leap more accurate than the matching technologies found in conventional EHR, EMPI, and MDM tools.
