Making the Case for MDM in Statewide Health Information Exchange

For over a decade, the private sector, and statewide and federal U.S. government organizations, have turned to Ai to rethink how health information is shared, managed, and protected. Our company track record highlights several health IT and policy areas where Ai has worked closely with business and technology stakeholders, to address complex challenges in health information systems integration, interoperability, and clinical data exchange. For example, Ai’s implementation of master data management (MDM) tools to enable health information exchange has set the standard for state HIEs throughout the nation.

Coupled with our health information technology and policy capabilities, Ai’s MDM and Infosphere (Initiate) domain expertise has enabled our software engineers to work closely with HIO/HIEs in one of the most important areas of core HIE infrastructure–robust identity management and master patient index. To that end, Ai serves as a technology partner to prominent HIO/HIEs around the country to advise on HIE strategy, and perform technical integration and MPI and MPD work across disparate systems.
