Patient matching is critical for an HIE to gain a complete and accurate view of a patient across all of its participants. But patient information is frequently inconsistent across organizations, making patient matching a challenge. Verato offers an innovative, big-data approach to patient matching that is highly accurate even if patient information is inconsistent, out-of-date, or incomplete. Verato leverages this approach—called “referential matching”—to provide SDHC with a real-time, cloud-based service that automatically processes difficult matches that would otherwise have to be manually reviewed and resolved. This saves SDHC time and effort, decreases redundant tests and procedures, and improves care quality and population health.

As the unbiased data trustees in their communities, SHIEC member organizations are critical to advancing effective, efficient healthcare delivery locally, regionally and nationally to improve health.
