Patient Identification and Matching
Event May 14 - May 14, 2019
The Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel
Philadelphia, PA, USA
There is currently no standardized way to identify and match patient records internally, nor externally to other healthcare providers, posing a major challenge to hospitals and the healthcare ecosystem. Different approaches to standardization are currently being debated. While regulations mandate the use of EHRs, current regulations are not yet on pace with the technology and the lack of standards around the data continues to pose a huge risk to healthcare providers with misidentification costing the average healthcare facility $17.4 million a year in denied claims and potential lost revenue.* Join us at CBI’s Patient Identification and Matching to gain technology strategies, practical IT solutions/processes and the latest developments in standardization efforts for patient identification management and matching.
