Master Patient Index

Identifying duplicate patient records and maintaining existing patient data records accurately is a difficult problem most health care enterprises face on a daily basis. Duplication of patient data arises from human error, nicknames, abbreviations and even fraud. Lack of appropriate technology at the data input interface point is also a major cause of duplication in patient data.
