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.
