Does your EHR, MPI, or MDM have a large queue of patient identities (or Queue-PID, pronounced “cupid”) awaiting manual review by your HIM team to determine if those identities are duplicates? Fall in love with Verato Auto-Steward™ this Valentine’s day and dramatically improve your patient matching.
Learn how a simple plug-in can seamlessly connect with Epic to automatically find and resolve its missed matches and duplicate records, including the “potential duplicate records” it has flagged for manual resolution.

A few years ago, patient matching was a challenge addressed by health information management professionals within the four walls of their hospitals and health systems. Today, accurate patient matching has become a national imperative—in early October, five US senators wrote a letter to the GAO urging it to consider the effects of a national patient matching strategy.
Today, we mourn the timely passing of a dear but increasingly obsolete—and obstinate—friend, Master Patient Index.
As the healthcare industry continues to push toward interoperability, one key component is still lagging, causing cracks in the foundation of any successful data framework: Patient matching.
IBM Initiate is a state-of-the-art master patient index (MPI) solution with best-of-breed patient matching capabilities. But it requires thousands or millions of potential matches to be manually reviewed. Learn how you can automatically match those potential matches, saving the time and effort of manual review.
It’s time for organizations to stop performing MPI cleanups. Verato offers a Referential Matching plug-in that works continuously to find and remediate duplicates an EHR or EMPI has missed, and that prevent duplicates from being created in the first place.
Traditional patient matching engines use patients’ names, addresses, and other identity data to link patient records together. But this data is constantly changing, making matching a challenge. This blog examines how you can accurately match patient records even if they contain out-of-date data.
Verato had a great week at HIMSS16 in Las Vegas. Many members of our marketing, sales, and executive leadership teams made it out at one point or another to learn more about HIT, to network with other HIT professionals, and to spread the word about our unique patient matching solution that drives interoperability.
If you’ve ever renovated a house or bought a “fixer-upper,” you know all about sweat equity—it’s the painstaking investment of time and labor that goes into the project. What you might not know is when you buy a modern identity matching solution—whether a Master Data Management (MDM) or Master Patient Index (MPI) tool—you are signing up for more sweat equity than you realize.
