Webinar: Improving Patient Matching in Your EHR

About this webinar:

Alan Wills, Executive Director of Northeast Georgia’s HealtheConnection HIE discusses how a simple plug-in service can seamlessly improve the patient matching capabilities of Epic® and Cerner®.

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). And 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 duplicates” needing review and remediation, and duplicate rates of 20% or higher.
