Patient Identification – The Challenges Healthcare Leaders and the Industry are Facing Today

Experian Health

Exchanging information across the healthcare ecosystem and achieving interoperability is a goal and challenge all healthcare organizations share. Developing proper processes and procedures continues to play a larger role in facilitating interoperability, improving patient outcomes, and creating efficiencies.

And while healthcare is achieving interoperability in some areas, a critical area of focus should fall on accurate patient identification. Further progress is being hindered by the lack of standardization and accuracy of patient data, which when exchanged increases errors exponentially across the industry. The most significant impact of these errors is patients receiving incorrect treatments.

In this webinar Andrew Gettinger, M.D., Acting Deputy National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO) at ONC will address many of the challenges the industry is facing around patient identification today.  He will also discuss the role that healthcare leaders, enterprises, physicians, and even patients plays in improving quality outcomes.  

Key Topics of this Webinar include:

  1. Interoperability importance
  2. Creation of proper processes and procedures
  3. Challenges & frustrations around patient identification
  4. Lack of standardization
  5. Patient safety impacts
