NextGate Enhances Usability, Reporting and Performance with EMPI Version 11

Latest release sets new bar in patient identity management

PASADENA, Calif., August 31, 2020 – As part of its commitment to product innovation, NextGate, the global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, has released Version 11 of its market-leading Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) solution. With significant technical and functional enhancements, V11 is a major step forward in NextGate’s EMPI journey toward a more efficient, secure, and resilient platform to meet industry-wide demand for better patient identity management.

The result of extensive customer feedback and rigorous focus, V11 improves an organizations ability to quickly integrate, cleanse, and de-duplicate patient information for better clinical, operational and financial outcomes. The latest version of NextGate’s flagship solution features key performance, workflow and reporting capabilities, as well as advanced use of third-party reference data

Key list of EMPI enhancements in V11 include:

  • Simplified Data Quality Manager, with seamless access to NextGate’s AUGMENT solution for advanced use of reference (external) data
  • Enhanced side by side record comparison
  • New potential duplicate history (tracks changes over time)
  • Streamlined capabilities and additional search fields for reviewing duplicates
  • Improved commenting functionality
  • Improved security, including support for multi-factor authentication
  • Optional SaaS offering in the cloud

Built for healthcare’s increasingly complex and disparate IT environment, NextGate’s EMPI solution delivers a comprehensive record of care by linking and de-duplicating data across an infinite number of systems, sources and locations for accurate patient identification and real-time information exchange.

COVID-19 has served as a sobering reminder of the continued patient matching vulnerabilities of our nation’s healthcare system. Collecting and analyzing patient data from hospitals, labs and other entities is vital to improving our public health response to the pandemic. Yet, faults in the ability to accurately match and collect patient demographics are obstructing the road to recovery.

“In today’s challenging environment, healthcare organizations can no longer afford to deny the critical role of patient identification,” said Gevik Nalbandian, Vice President of Software Engineering for NextGate. “As the most robust identity management solution on the market, V11 is making it easier, faster and more reliable to deliver immediate improvements across the continuum.”
