Who Is Occam?
Occam is an enterprise software company out to simplify the patient identity problem. Our eMPI (enterprise Master Patient Index) software makes two big objectives a lot easier:
- Clean Data: free of duplicate patient records
- Connected Data: where it’s irrelevant that patient records are split across separate registration systems and EMRs.
We started in 2005 as Prosch Consulting focused on the “connected” part of the story, helping health systems, HIT companies, and government health share patient data. In those days, our solutions left most of the patient matching and data quality stuff to the EMR vendors. The problem is that patient identity isn’t real high on their list.
We’re located in the West suburbs of Chicago – and we serve healthcare organizations of all shapes and sizes nationwide.
About our name… It comes from Occam’s Razor, the idea that if more than one solution produces the same result, the simpler one is the right one.
