“I am intimately familiar with the challenge that inaccurate and growing data sources present to value-based care initiatives,” said Blackmer. “After meeting with the team at Verato, I recognized that the opportunity for cloud-based referential matching, or MPI as a service, is on the cusp of exploding. I am pleased to join the team at this exciting stage.”
Verato offers a cloud-based matching platform that links and matches identities across disparate sources with the highest accuracy rates in the industry. Verato leverages an extensive self-learning database of U.S. identities as a reference, or universal answer key. And because it is cloud-based, the Verato platform is less expensive, faster to implement, and more scalable than traditional matching technology. Verato is based in McLean, VA.
