NextGate and FEI Systems Announce Strategic Partnership to Support Comprehensive Access to Rich, Unified Patient Data

FEI Systems adds real-time patient matching and identification to its data warehouse solution

COLUMBIA, Md. and PASADENA, Calif., March 24, 2021 NextGate, the global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, and FEI Systems, a leading provider of state and federal health and human services IT solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to enhance FEI’s data warehouse platform, InfoBridge, with automated patient matching and identification.

The addition of NextGate’s market-leading Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) to FEI’s data warehouse solution will empower FEI customers with a single view of patients by linking medical records in any given system and reconciling data discrepancies across multiple sources and sites of care.

Using the real-time patient matching and data integration capabilities of NextGate’s EMPI, InfoBridge gives its state and federal customers comprehensive access to rich, unified patient data—collected, de-duplicated and centrally housed—to power in-depth reporting and drive informed clinical and business decisions. The partnership between NextGate and FEI Systems already supports a new contract with the Iowa Department of Public Health to build a central data repository for submitting substance abuse data to meet state reporting requirements.

“Incomplete or inaccurate data in one’s health record can be detrimental to patient safety and a major impediment to providing well-coordinated, individualized care,” said Andy Aroditis, CEO of NextGate. “We are honored to support FEI System’s long tradition of excellence and innovation with a fully-integrated, automated EMPI solution that consistently and correctly matches individuals to their health data anytime, anywhere for clinical, operational and financial improvements.”

“Our organization has been committed to providing solutions that contribute to the delivery of personalized, whole-person care for more than two decades, and this partnership will allow us to expand our ability to support our clients in serving the most vulnerable members of our communities,” said Dave Castille, President of FEI Systems. “The addition of NextGate’s market-leading EMPI will advance our mission to connect every dimension of health and human services, and we are proud to partner with them in providing this vital service.”
