NYeC engages Verato for patient matching services

Dec. 15, 2017

Verato, a provider of cloud-based patient matching solutions, announced that the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), a not-for-profit organization that is working with the New York State Department of Health to lead the advancement of the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY), will use Verato AUTO-STEWARD, a service on the next-generation Verato Universal MPI (master patient index) platform. Verato AUTO-STEWARD will automate the process for difficult potential matches that the SHIN-NY’s existing MPI has flagged for manual review and resolution by a data steward and will enhance patient matching accuracy and efficiency.

The SHIN-NY is a “network of networks” that links New York’s eight qualified entities (QEs) throughout the state. Each QE operates its own network that—with patient consent—facilitates the exchange of electronic health records between participating providers in its community. Through the SHIN-NY network, the QEs’ participants are able to exchange records with each other. Combined, the SHIN-NY’s eight QEs connect nearly all of the hospitals in New York State, thousands of medical providers, and represent millions of people who live in or receive care in New York.

As part of a multi-year subscription, the Verato platform will integrate with SHIN-NY’s existing enterprise MPI (eMPI) to automatically process and resolve records the eMPI has flagged as potential duplicates requiring manual review by a data steward. Using its “Referential Matching” approach, Verato is able to match records that conventional eMPI’s could never match. This is because Referential Matching leverages a self-learning database of demographic data spanning the entire U.S. as an “answer key” for patient matching questions. The Verato Universal MPI platform is cloud-based and HITRUST certified, making implementation secure, quick, and easy.
