QuadraMed Launches Next-Generation Identity Management Solution

August 7, 2008 - QuadraMed Corp. said its Smart Identity Exchange (Smart I/X) is now available.

The Smart Identity Exchange (Smart I/X) is a next-generation identity management solution that helps hospitals and health information exchanges (HIEs) in their efforts to identify, reconcile and manage patient records to reduce the potential for medical errors and expenses such as unnecessary tests and procedures.

Adding another powerful tool to QuadraMed's Best in KLAS portfolio of identity management solutions, Smart I/X is both an enterprise master person index (EMPI) and a record locator/reconciliation solution designed specifically for organizations that require a means of more accurately identifying patients and establishing and maintaining a composite medical record across multiple data sources. The solution helps organizations comply with HIPAA and uses a probabilistic algorithm to analyze all records stored in an organization's MPI systems, cross-references and reconciles them, then assigns each patient a unique, enterprise identifier.

QuadraMed's Smart I/X uses probabilistic matching to identify and link patient records - regarded by industry experts as the best practice approach to record matching because of its accuracy rate of 90 percent or higher, said the company. Organizations can utilize the algorithm's probabilistic logic combined with organization-specific rules to automatically link records to reportedly minimize manual review and reconciliation. The accuracy rate of QuadraMed's proprietary algorithm and the ease of use of the software applications led the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) to adopt QuadraMed's Smart Identity Management software in 2005 as part of its e-HIM Virtual Lab Project. The Virtual Lab is used to educate and train Health Information Management (HIM) students and professionals nationwide on the latest identity management technology.
