Using the Voluntary Universal Patient Identifier System
July 31, 2012, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Barry Hieb, M.D., Chief Scientist, Global Patient Identifiers, Inc., Sponsor of the Voluntary Universal Healthcare Identifier Project. Accurate patient identification is a prerequisite for the information exchange envisioned as part of the Nationwide Health Information Network. Support for various patient consent and privacy paradigms is also a necessity. Join us for a discussion about how a private enterprise implementation of unique healthcare identifiers can address these issues and contribute to significant cost savings for the healthcare system.
