Enable Effective eHealth Initiatives

IBM United Kingdom Limited

Today many health insurers, health providers and ministries of health are implementing eHealth architectures to facilitate electronic medical records, telemedicine, and image and results sharing among a variety of participants including hospitals, physicians and labs.

In developing an eHealth architecture, it is important to plan for future information requirements. In the future, the information flowing through this eHealth infrastructure may be tasked with supporting broader initiatives like social services, fraud detection, disease and immunization registries, and e-prescribing. As information sharing needs evolve, it is important to have an MPI that is proven to integrate with legacy and new systems while supporting accurate identification of multiple entities including: patients, providers, members and citizens.
