Correlation Channel (CC)

  • Print

The Care Data Correlation Channel (CC) is an Enterprise Master Patient index (EMPI) comparable in features to IBM Initiate TM but at a fraction of its cost. A large healthcare provider enterprise must manage identities of patients, doctors, and perhaps households. Identifiers for these entities must be robustly correlated across various registration, order entry, and ancillary systems.  The CC manages the "golden record" for each entity, with mobile (Android) support for identity error alerts.

In processing an incoming match request the CC invokes both a proprietary probabilistic algorithm and the Felehy-Sunter algorithm in a coordinated manner that resolves in excess of 99.9% of match requests without the need for human intervention.

The Correlation Channel complies with all popular standard formats and protocols (HL7 including FHIR, OMG, and IHE) and is easy to integrate into any healthcare integration environment.
