4medica Rallies for Broad Patient Identification Discussions at the 2019 State Healthcare IT Connect Summit
Date:3/12/2019

The U.S. healthcare industry has well documented the national need for a single, unified and accurate view of each patient moving through different care settings. With a shared goal of providing interoperable solutions to accurately match patient records across the healthcare ecosystem, 4medica® today announced its support for broader discussions about the unique patient identifier at the 2019 State Healthcare IT Connect Summit. The event is March 18-20 at the Hilton Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.

“We're starting to realize success in solving complex financial and operational data management issues such as inaccurate patient medical histories and duplicate charts that plague our healthcare system,” said Gregg Church, president, 4medica. “However, we need standardization and commitment from both the private and public sector to make changes that will advance patient safety. The State Healthcare IT Connect Summit is the perfect forum to lead policy and research initiatives to effectively address this universal problem in the right way. We’re excited to join the discussions and share successes solving our clients’ challenges.”

Attendees are invited to meet with Church at the 4medica booth #38 and view demos of the 4medica Big Data MPI™ and 4medica Big Data CDR™ (Big Data Clinical Data Repository) solutions.

Church and co-speaker Jaime Bland, DNP, R.N.-BC, and CEO of Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NeHII), will lead the Innovators Roundtable panel discussion titled “Taming the MPI Management Dragon” 1:30-2:30 p.m. ET, Tuesday, March 19, in Key Ballroom 12. Panel participants can weigh in on identity management with an innovative “Big Data” master data management approach. They will further explore ways to manage the explosive growth of data sources and data types while assigning a proven UPI to each identity with 100 percent matching accuracy.

“The average rate of identity duplication hovers around 12 percent, and the known cost to reconcile a single pair of duplicate records is approximately $1,000,” continued Church. “The problems of patient identification and matching result in risk of medical errors and inefficiencies to care coordination programs such as population management and the billing process. Together, the healthcare industry can promote the use of sustainable and scalable solutions to facilitate a reliable and safer clinical interoperability platform.”

4medica brings more than two decades of experience in clinical data interoperability, surpassing any other company in the patient identification and matching space. The company has managed billions of test results since its inception in 1998, oversees nearly 70 million patient identities and connects more than 40,000 physicians to hundreds of labs and hospitals nationwide. Since 2013, 4medica has sold the 4medica Big Data MPI to federally funded health information exchanges (HIEs) and health information networks (HINs), private HIEs, accountable care organizations (ACOs), multi-hospital health systems, hospitals and commercial laboratories.

For example, Michigan Health Information Network (MiHIN) and New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) spoke at the 2018 ONC Interoperability Forum in Washington, D.C. Church participated on a patient matching panel at the ONC 2018 Meeting in Washington, D.C.
