Weekly Learning Objective: Develop policies for health information exchange. (III.G.1)

Background:
Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap is the result of a 
nationwide effort to identify policy and technical actions needed to realize the ONCHIT vision of a seamless 
data system. 

For this assignment, you are to read the Executive Summary of the Roadmap (pages i – xvii) and information related 
to technical component “L”. Component “L”, starts on page 36 and describes Accurate Individual Data Matching as 
one of the technical steps to achieving interoperability. As stated in the report: “Whether aggregated in a repository 
or linked “just in time,” electronic health information from disparate sources must be accurately matched to prevent 
information fragmentation and the incorrect merging of records. As technology evolves, provider identities, system 
identities, device identities and others that support public health and clinical research will need to be accurately 
matched”. (ONCHIT. Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap. 
2015.). In addition to the information required in the roadmap, you are to read the resource articles that discuss patient 
mapping found above. 

Correct patient identification and matching are crucial if we are ever to be able to access patient information from 
different points of service, and to create a workable HIE. From the basic articles provided, you will see that this activity, 
while crucial for patient care and information sharing, is not done very well.
Access the Patient Identification and Matching document for the details/requirements in order to successfully
complete the assignment.
