PASADENA, Calif., January 14, 2020NextGate, the global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, announced today its participation in the 2020 IHE North American (NA) Connectathon, January 20-24, in Cleveland, Ohio. An avid supporter of the event since 2010, NextGate will showcase its leadership and long-term commitment to facilitating adoption of healthcare industry standards for enhanced integration and interoperability.

NextGate is dedicated to helping organizations overcome the clinical, operational and financial challenges that result from poor patient identification and siloed systems of information by providing a connected record of care across the enterprise.

During the event, NextGate will collaborate with 100 participating health IT vendors and more than 500 product managers, software engineers, IT architects and developers to demonstrate the value of bidirectional standards-based connectivity and its suite of integrated, highly-interoperable solutions.

NextGate has a long history of bringing effective interoperability innovation to the IHE NA Connectathon with its comprehensive suite of identity management solutions. This year, the focus of NextGate’s testing efforts will be its flagship Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), which manages patient identities for more than two-thirds of the U.S. population. NextGate’s EMPI, available on-premise or in the cloud, is the industry’s leading identity management platform that combines vendor-agnostic, cross-system interoperability with superior patient matching capabilities for a complete and accurate health record.

“NextGate is once again delighted to demonstrate its commitment to enabling seamless and reliable data sharing capabilities across our market-leading patient ID matching solution,” said Daniel Cidon, Chief Technology Officer of NextGate. “A complete and accurate view of patients holds the key to solving many organizational challenges. As vendors and innovators, we have a responsibility to provide solutions that facilitate continuous interoperability across boundaries from provider to provider for informed, life-saving decision-making.”

Participating in the IHE NA Connectathon event and integrating seamlessly with other health IT companies underscores NextGate’s commitment to interoperability and bringing innovative solutions to market that helps organizations meet the insurmountable demands of coordinated, patient-centric care.

“NextGate looks forward to participating in the IHE NA Connectathon and expanding our interoperability among disparate technologies to streamline the registration process and prevent patient identification errors,” said Andy Aroditis, CEO of NextGate. “For over two decades, NextGate has placed interoperability at the core of our identity management architecture to enable timely, accurate and comprehensive information across providers for enhanced clinical decision-making and better outcomes.”

Sponsored by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), the NA Connectathon is the industry’s largest interoperability testing event bringing together health IT vendors and government entities to collaborate and test the use of standards.
