Data integrity in Electronic Health Records (EHR) is fast becoming top priority at healthcare organizations. An Enterprise Master Patient Index (eMPI) clean up is not only a key part of a successful EHR implementation or conversion, but the effect of existing duplicate medical record numbers (DMRN) can result in severe adverse patient care outcomes. e4 has an experienced team of medical records experts that have led successful eMPI clean up initiatives at multiple organizations across the country. eMPI initiatives have become very popular with our clients because when using a leading eMPI clean up vendor like e4, they save money, increase the level of patient care and satisfaction, and gain clinician EHR support.
