The Enterprise Master Patient Index Service
An important infrastructure service offered by the Cloud9 platform is the Enterprise Master Patient Index Service (eMPI).
The eMPI provides the healthcare enterprise with a single authoritative source for patient demographic data. Through a set of published web services, clinical applications can query the eMPI service to uniquely and accurately identify members of populations.
By correctly matching patient records from disparate systems and different organizations, a complete and accurate view of a patient may be obtained.
The Cloud9 eMPI offers the healthcare enterprise the following key benefits:
- Increase patient safety
- Increased efficiency through a reduction in multiple handling.
- In emergency or critical care situations, staff can be more confident that the system is presenting them with the most accurate information.
- Finding and sharing Historical patient information across organizations is greatly simplified.
