Do You Know Your Duplicate Rate?

It’s probably higher than you think. The average hospital has a duplicate rate between 8–12%!1 Clean patient data is the critical first step for any successful health IT integration, EHR conversion, interoperability initiative, or electronic information exchange.

We Care About Your Data Integrity

Small EMPI analytics providers don’t have the infrastructure, scalability or resources to guarantee the security of your data. Large enterprise technology companies don’t have in-house EMPI analytics expertise and may outsource your data analytics to another provider without your knowledge.

At QuadraMed®, we analyze your patient data in house with our proprietary analytics engine. Our EMPI experts will perform your SmartScan either on site on your hardware or from our secure data center, maintaining your data integrity throughout the process.

Understand the Source of Your Patient Data

Some EMPI providers rely on EHR-generated reports for duplicate rate metrics, which are often inaccurate and don’t provide a real indication of the underlying data mismatch issues. Our probabilistic analytics engine discovers patient record discrepancies with more efficiency, quality and accuracy than native Epic and Cerner reports and other third-party EMPI applications.
