General Patient Identity Management (PIM) Policy across Linked electronic systems
1st October 2017.
31st September 2017
Introduction (Rationale for the policy)
The healthcare system has in recent times digitized patient records in claims databases, electronic health records (EHR), patient registries among other avenues. In all cases, patients are accorded unique identifiers depending on the platform in question (Gliklich, Dreyer & Leavy, 2014). This has led to difficulty in patient identification and failure to distinguish duplicate records across linked systems. Therefore, a patient identity management policy is needed in order to address these issues in the given context. Major challenges to be considered in the process include privacy and security of patient data.
Patient Identify Management refers to the safe and accurate identification, management, tracking and linking of digital patient information across various electronic healthcare systems.
There should be a single, unique patient identifier (UPI) for each patient that shall be used for identification, tracking, management and any other clinically useful activity in all electronic databases.
