One Patient, One Record: Profiles in Patient Matching Strategies
About our Sponsor: NextGate’s mission is to address the fundamental challenge of data management in healthcare: the uncertainties and missed opportunities caused by duplicate and disconnected records in a data population. NextGate helps healthcare organizations improve data quality and reduce errors. While implementing interface engines in the early 1990s, NextGate noticed a significant increase in the amount of duplicate and incomplete patient records. Previously, data stayed within its own silo, but now that applications became integrated, there was no easy or automatic way to compare patient identifiers to see if information was being shared about the same patient. This issue caused multiple duplicate records and contaminated data quality. Because this technical issue could impact a patient’s health, NextGate decided to find a solution.
