  4. Avoid Costly and Dangerous Patient Identification Errors

Patient identification errors can jeopardize patient safety and raise healthcare costs. LexisNexis can help providers avoid these issues by properly linking patient data.

Patient identification errors and duplicate records jeopardize patient safety and raise healthcare costs. They can lead to incorrect diagnosis and treatment, redundant tests and services, unnecessary hospitalizations and productivity loss.

Patient record interoperability presents another obstacle to linking health data and correctly identifying patients. Electronic medical records from disparate sources are often non-compatible, making data exchanges across different health systems complicated.

LexisNexis can help healthcare providers mitigate patient identification errors by confidently identifying and linking patients with their health records across healthcare delivery systems.
