White Paper: What is Referential Matching?

A complete guide to this groundbreaking patient matching approach.

What is patient matching?

Patient matching is what enables healthcare organizations to link a patient’s health records together—even when those records are in different places. While patient matching can happen across organizations (such as finding and sending the correct patient’s clinical data to aide collaboration via health information exchange), it is typically talked about in the context of a single organization linking each patient’s data across its many facilities and technology systems— from its billing system, to clinical data in its various EHRs, to its labs and imaging and pharmacy management systems.
