Strategies for accurate patient identification and maintaining patient record integrity

Date: 
Thursday, March 9, 2017

Time: 2PM ET

Studies show that 7-10% of patients are misidentified during medical record searches. That’s why The Joint Commission proclaimed improving patient identification to be the #1 National Patient Safety Goal for hospitals. In addition, patient misidentification not only causes safety concerns but also impacts a hospital’s bottom line through a loss of revenue from MPI clean-up costs, denied medical claims, and bad debt.

After this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Summarize industry statistics around patient misidentification
  • Describe the causes of patient misidentification
  • Understand the impact of misidentification on the revenue cycle and on patient safety
  • Implement solutions for positive patient identification
