A little bit before HIMSS, Healthcare Scene had the chance to sit down with a panel of experts on patient identification and patient matching, but I wasn’t able to post that interview until now. This is such an important topic, so I was happy to learn from some real experts in the space.
In this interview we talk over the challenges associated with matching patients in healthcare and the damage that’s done when you don’t match the right patient. We also talk about the solutions to the patient identification and matching problem including the impact a national patient identifier would have on the problem. Finally, we talk over CHIME’s $1 million National Patient ID challenge.
Here’s a look at those who participated in the discussion:
- Beth Just, MBA, RHIA, FAHIMA, CEO and President of Just Associates
- Michael Trader, President of RightPatient
- John Lynn, Founder of Healthcare Scene
