MONROVIA, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NextGate, a leading provider of Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) and Registry solutions, together with its Business Partners, today announce that 15 new customer contracts were signed during its third quarter, signifying continued momentum for NextGate's EMPI and Provider Registry to provide patient identity matching and centralized management of institutional and individual provider information for HIE, ACO, and patient-centric initiatives. NextGate's vendor-neutral applications remain in high demand, emerging as the "gold standard" for precise patient matching and for coordinating the exchange of relevant content among participating organizations.
The customers represent a variety of healthcare organizations, including HIEs, ACOs, medical centers, physician groups, and healthcare data information providers. As a foundation for their many IT projects, the customers sought to clean, organize and consolidate the incomplete, duplicate, or conflicting data about patients and providers circulating throughout their systems, and thereby give care providers access to accurate and complete information.
The NextGate EMPI creates a centralized patient index, supplying physicians and other applications with a reliable, consolidated, and de-duplicated source of a patient's demographics and their local identifiers, enabling cross-platform translation. Similarly, the Provider Registry aggregates data from multiple sources to create a comprehensive index of provider information to improve the efficiency of healthcare processes, such as referrals and claims management. Both solutions use standards-based protocols for integration.
The NextGate EMPI and Provider Registry are components of the NextGate Registries for Healthcare platform, a master data management system that identifies, correlates, and aggregates information from disparate systems to create a unified, contextualized view of information across participating entities.
NextGate provides Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) and registry solutions that integrate, index and coordinate data from disparate systems to provide unified views, expedite decision processing, and streamline interoperability to drive performance. www.nextgate.com
