What’s in a name? For patients, providers, payers, and health information networks, getting identity right is nearly everything. The dangers of associating a name with the wrong information are simply too high.

Patients change home locations, their names, care facilities, and doctors. Providers may retire or change names, locations, organization affiliations, and insurance networks. Managing and adapting to this constant churn has been a mostly manual, time-consuming, costly process.

For patient safety, for member satisfaction, to improve quality, avoid penalties and save money, provider, payer, and health information network organizations need identity management automation.

InterSystems Identity Management Solutions

HealthShare Provider Directory - For Payers and Providers

Inaccurate provider information has consequences. Wrong telephone numbers and location information limits access to care. Inadvertently choosing an out-of-network provider can result in catastrophic healthcare bills. Health plans have been fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for publishing inaccurate directories.

InterSystems HealthShare Provider Directory automates the process of creating, updating, and publishing accurate provider information as a “golden record.” It enables you to comply with regulations such as CMS 9115-F and the No Surprises Act more easily, enhance customer service, and improve the efficiency of any business process that requires up-to-date and accurate provider information.

InterSystems HealthShare - For Health Information Networks

Manually identifying the same patient in multiple records from multiple, diverse EMRs, and merging the information, would not be economically viable at the scale Health Information Networks (HINs) need for success. Successful HINs use InterSystems HealthShare solutions to automate the process, at scale. HealthShare also enables HINs to deliver value-added services that can only be built on aggregated, normalized, and accurate longitudinal patient records.
