The widespread adoption of EHR has brought the healthcare industry into the digital age. It has enabled providers to collect and present data to clinicians in a much more organized and efficient way.
But there is a downside.
Most organizations have disconnected IT environments comprised of multiple applications and systems that don’t talk to each other. The result is mountains of data, much of it duplicated. Getting to a single patient “golden record” is a challenge, but one that must be met to ensure patient safety.
The first generation of technology to address the patient matching conundrum was a good start, but is no longer enough. The answer is a next generation EMPI platform that provides an OpenData model, scalability, backend Big Data database, flexibility, self-service, and a superior UI experience.
