What is an Enterprise Master Person / Patient Index?
An EMPI creates a cross-reference of patient information that is kept current by rules to identify, match, and update data from multiple source applications. The EMPI can leverage existing universal identifiers or create its own. The metadata model is made configurable to accommodate the storage of any fields. The EMPI is adaptable to a variety of healthcare architectures, including Health Information Exchanges (HIE’s), Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s), Medical Home Projects, Health Systems and other health data networks.
