DFWHC and NextGate webinar “Patient Matching”

Chris Wilson / June 27 @ 1:00 pm / Events



The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) in coordination with NextGate will host the webinar “Comparing Patient Matching Value & Performance for the Healthcare Enterprise” on Thursday, June 27 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (CST).

Duplicate patient records cost U.S. healthcare systems more than $6 billion annually and individual hospitals $1.5M per year. The problem not only negatively impacts a provider’s bottom line, but can lead to medical errors, skewed reporting and analytics, redundant medical testing, administrative waste and poor patient satisfaction.

Webinar attendees will learn:
• Why patient matching is difficult in today’s IT;
• How an EMPI connects records across systems and settings;
• Differences between an MPI and an EMPI;
• Why an EMPI is a foundational component.

David Bennett, regional vice president, B. S. E. E., of NextGate, will serve as the keynote speaker with DFWHC President/CEO W. Stephen Love providing the introductions.

You can register here.
