Change Healthcare, Experian Health join forces for identity management solution

Change Healthcare partnered with Experian Health to create an identity management solution that aims to improve patient identification and avoid duplication.

The solution aims to combine identity management capabilities with workflow applications to identify patients accurately and match records within and across organizations. The solution will leverage Experian Health's identity management expertise along with Change Healthcare's Intelligent Healthcare Network, which serves about 2,200 government and commercial payers, 5,500 hospitals, 900,000 physicians and 33,000 pharmacies.

"Healthcare is a team sport, and various players have to coordinate to provide optimal care to a patient," said Kris Joshi, PhD, executive vice president and president of network solutions at Change Healthcare. "Secure identity management is key to improving patient safety and capturing full value from the billions of dollars invested in electronic health record systems."
