PASADENA, Calif., May 16, 2018 – MKM Health, a leading health IT solutions company across Australia and New Zealand, has entered into an agreement with NextGate, a global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, to become an authorized reseller of NextGate’s flagship EMPI and Provider & Organization Registry software. The agreement enables customers in Australia and New Zealand to overcome the challenges of today’s complex healthcare IT environment and link patient and provider data across multiple disparate systems, sources and locations for a centralized record of care and reliable data exchange.
“This exciting agreement with NextGate will allow MKM Health to extend its scope of system integration and data management services offered to the Australian and New Zealand healthcare sectors,” said MKM Health’s Chief Executive Officer, Kate Quirke. “We are pleased to have this opportunity to work more closely with the NextGate team and their market leading software.”
With NextGate’s industry-leading patient ID matching Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), hospitals will be better able to manage their patient populations with a complete and accurate view of medical data across the continuum for greater clinical, operational and financial efficiency. To help customers effortlessly manage their physician and provider networks, NextGate’s Provider Registry brings centralized visibility across all systems and sources while preventing the proliferation of incomplete and often outdated provider data.
The reseller agreement is a significant investment in improved quality and patient safety and will be a key enabler of a fully interoperable infrastructure of connected, coordinated care.
A partnership between NextGate and MKM Health already supports a multi-year contract with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in Victoria in deploying EMPI technology for the Victorian Public Health Sector.
“Our agreement with MKM will greatly enhance and widen our market to help the global healthcare sector address their most challenging data sharing and patient identification issues,” said Andy Aroditis, CEO of NextGate. “Accurately and consistently connecting the right data to the right individual is a critical requirement in today’s digitized healthcare environment and we are extremely pleased to expand our relationship with MKM to mutually help customers maximize efficiencies, reduce errors and provide the best care possible.”
NextGate is the leading provider of identity matching solutions that connect the healthcare ecosystem to help organizations promote interoperability and overcome the clinical, operational and financial challenges that result from duplicate records and siloed systems enabling seamless data exchange, enhanced clinical decision-making and value-driven care. NextGate’s Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) is the healthcare industry’s leading patient identification solution, managing more than 300 million lives worldwide.
