9/19/2017 12:00:00 PM - 1:00:00 PM (CST)

Patient matching is inherently complicated, making it an issue across the US healthcare system. How do we solve this critical problem without creating more challenges? This webinar addresses national patient matching initiatives currently underway in the US as well as the importance of patient matching in our healthcare systems. It touches on key stakeholders attempting to solve the patient matching issue, including professional associations, healthcare organizations, government sectors, and various public and private entities. The presenter, based on their own experience, covers best practices in patient matching. The conversation will include important practices and processes such as standardizing naming conventions, staff training, and policies and procedures. Proactive approaches to maintaining a clean environment and a low duplicate error rate, such as overlay monitoring and downstream system assessments, will be discussed. The presenter will also examine the impact of data conversions on EMPI data integrity. By the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will be able to educate their staff and healthcare leaders in their facilities about the importance—and status—of patient matching.
