PASADENA, Calif., February 22, 2018 – NextGate, an global leader in patient and provider identification, will demonstrate the latest advancements in patient matching and cloud-based identity software solutions during the annual HIMSS conference in Las Vegas, March 6-9.

HIMSS18 attendees who visit booth 7111 will have an opportunity to view firsthand how NextGate’s identity management tools can transform their healthcare organizations by overcoming the cost, waste and data sharing challenges that result from duplicate records and disparate IT systems.

NextGate will preview major evolutions in biometric and cloud-based innovations, including its market-leading Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), the industry’s first fully managed identity matching platform in the cloud. As an integrated SaaS solution, NextGate’s EMPI allows organizations to rapidly and accurately deliver a longitudinal record at the point of care with the flexibility, affordability and scalability needed in today’s evolving healthcare environment.

“In the face of dramatic healthcare transformation and the pursuit of value based care, organizations must embrace new approaches to improve clinical, financial and operational outcomes. This includes the move to cloud-based solutions as a business imperative to cut costs and improve the quality of care,” said Andy Aroditis, CEO of NextGate.

“Inaccurate, missing or outdated patient information can have profound consequences. I am proud that NextGate is able to help organizations harness the benefits of a cloud environment to proactively manage, detect and eliminate data quality issues for a trusted, reliable patient record,” he said.

NextGate will also show off its newest development in EMPI technology-address resolution and geocode optimization-which uses real-time location intelligence to help solve the fundamental challenge of address management in healthcare for maximized efficiency and data quality.
