Probabilistic Algorithm: EHR and HIS vendors often use deterministic algorithms to discover duplicate records, but those methods are highly inaccurate. Our sophisticated probabilistic algorithm tunes itself to your data and detects duplicate patient records with up to 99% accuracy, adjusting the weight for each match based on your unique patient population.
Automated Matching Rules: Our automated matching rules can programmatically match and confirm 20–80% of your duplicates and overlaps, saving hundreds and even thousands of hours of manual cleanup work.
Workflow: We have developed and extensively tested a sophisticated workflow used by our patient data analysis experts during EMPI cleanups to assist in the management of duplicate medical record numbers.
Outbound Scripting: Our experienced, industry-leading healthcare technical staff customize outbound HL7 merge messages to your specifications.
User-Specific Views: Sort and filter your view of the EMPI based on the task at hand. For example, a user can filter the display to find all duplicates that need review and resolution, sorted by weight, date, or many other options. A manager can filter the data to see all duplicates assigned to a specific user that are unresolved and were identified within the past five days.
Automated Merging: Save time and resources by replacing your manual merge processes. Confirmed duplicates are placed in a queue to be merged automatically with a customized script or an HL7 merge message that can be built to your specifications.
Enterprise-Wide: The SmartID Platform includes both automated linking across domains and utilities to compare external files with the EMPI.
Front-End Prevention: Identity validation technology collects demographic and biometric data at registration, scheduling and the point of care, then guides patient access staff to select the right patient record in the EMPI based on a sophisticated probabilistic database search.
Audit Trail: All resolved duplicates are maintained in the database for auditing purposes.
IHE Compliance: The SmartID Platform conforms to industry-leading IHE integration and interoperability compliance initiatives for patient identity exchange including Audit Trail and Node Authentication, Patient Identifier Cross-Referencing with HL7v3, Patient Administrative Management, and Patient Demographic Query.
