Enterprise Master Patient Index for a Single Source of Truth
Poor patient identity management lowers care quality, is costly, and leaves organizations vulnerable to litigation. In one study, duplicate records were found to cost an estimated average of $1,200 per duplicate pair, not including the time and cost to correct the duplication. Patient privacy breaches that violate HIPAA can lead to millions of dollars lost in settlements, legal fees, and penalties. Organizations can be fined up to $50,000 per violation and settlement payments have been as high as $6.85 million.
