1:00pm - 4:30pm, ET
This webinar will focus on recent milestones in the area of patient matching at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). ONC established a variety of patient matching projects with the overarching goals of improving data quality, achieving higher interoperability, and delivering safer health care. The intent of the webinar is to provide an overview of the design and outcome of each project, including lessons learned and best practices for patient data capture and record matching.
Patient Matching Algorithm Challenge (PMAC): Adam Culbertson, ONC/MITRE/Challenge Winners
The goals of the ONC Patient Matching Algorithm Challenge (PMAC) were to bring about greater transparency and data on the performance of patient matching algorithms, spur the adoption of performance metrics for patient matching algorithm developers, and positively impact other aspects of patient matching such as deduplication and linking to clinical data.
