Enterprise Master Patient Index for a Single Source of Truth
Poor patient identity management lowers care quality, is costly, and leaves organisations 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. Organisations can be fined up to $50,000 per violation and settlement payments have been as high as $6.85 million.
InterSystems HealthShare Patient Index is enterprise master patient index (EMPI) software that provides an automated and easily integrated solution for creating a “single source of truth” for patient identity and demographic information. Patient Index is pre-configured to work with InterSystems HealthShare Unified Care Record to accelerate the merging of multi-source patient information into a single, accurate, unified care record.
Key features include Data Quality Framework, workflow integration, customised rules, auditing and security and more. Patient Index uses machine learning to help eliminate mistakes and liability from human error through manual record management, enabling organisations to provide accurate, quality care.
