The growing demand for health information exchange brings the challenges of accurate patient identification to the forefront, especially for children who often don’t have common identifiers or have non-static demographic information.
Children move more frequently than adults, often utilize the healthcare system more, and may live with caregivers who are not their parents. Patient matching is complicated for adults, so how do we address the unique challenges of patient identity matching in pediatrics?
Join eHI, clinicians from the American Academy of Pediatrics, and technology experts to discuss these challenges, including confidentiality concerns around matching children according to parental data and ensuring health data is accurate as children transition from pediatrics.
