A Statewide Service Network of Master Person Indices for Public Health, Healthcare Providers and Payers: Utah’s Exploration
Utah has been exploring methods to develop interoperability among enterprise Master Person Indices among Utah Department of Health (UDOH), the clinical Health Information Exchange (cHIE), Intermountain Healthcare and University of Utah Healthcare since 2010. Currently Utah MPIs strategy is evolving from building a centralized “Master of Masters” to a MPI-service network. For example, UDOH MPI offers death notifications from the death registrations and cHIE MPI provides patient identification cleansing services to its members. This roundtable will introduce Utah’s experience, invite others to share their experiences and suggestions, and form practical solutions to enhance interoperability of Health Information Exchanges.
