In their just released “2016 National Patient Misidentification Report,” the Ponemon Institute finds that patient misidentification can result in severe medical errors, denied medical claims, and costly clean-up of duplicate and overlaid medical records. Attend this webinar to learn the findings of this study and the implications of patient misidentification for hospitals. Highlights include: 

  • Clinicians spend up to 30 minutes or more per shift searching for accurate patient charts
