About Patient Identification

We recognize that to maximize the safety, security, availability, and integrity of patient health records, certain processes must be in place to ensure proper identification and matching of patients to their unique health information in health IT systems.   

The ability to properly identify individuals is imperative to patient safety and advancing interoperability across the healthcare ecosystem.
