About this webinar
It is an enormous challenge to identify patients across the continuum of care. This is because patients' identifying information—like names, addresses, and birthdates—is constantly changing and is notoriously error prone.
While many health IT professionals believe a National Unique Patient Identifier (UPID) would solve the problems of patient identification and patient matching, such an identifier is not the best solution.
Orginially presented by Verato's Founder and CTO Brent Williams at the 2017 CHIA Convention and Exhibit, this webinar will cover the patient identification challenge and offer more feasible solutions that already exist.
Viewers of this webinar will learn:
The roots of the patient identifying and patient matching problem
- 7 critical challenges that make a UPID infeasible and an impractical solution to these problems
- The challenges of implementing a UPID in the United States versus other countries that have already implemented one
- Alternative solutions to the patient identification problem
