The Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT Releases Findings from Patient Matching Study Conducted by Ai

During a meeting on December 16, 2013, Ai and ONC released initial findings from their patient identification and matching stakeholder study. To execute this work, ONC leveraged Ai’s capabilities as subject matter experts in the application of identity management technology in healthcare. In addition, Ai conducted an environmental scan on industry capabilities and solutions for master data management (MDM) and identity matching. The team interviewed more than 50 health systems and software vendors and produced recommendations on standardized patient identifying attributes, EHR technology, and patient matching policies and best practices.
