Occam for Government

One record for each citizen across all programs.

Individual agencies maintain siloed information systems, making it hard to know which clients they have in common. They also get bombarded with reports from outside sources that need to be tied to an individual.

Occam’s Bulletproof Matching identifies common individuals across internal and external information systems and assigns an enterprise identifier to tie them together.

Person records linked across two or more datasets usually contain conflicting values. Occam’s Master Data Management capability deals with conflicts in two ways: (1) As a Gatekeeper to prevent good data in your transactional systems from being overwritten with stale data (2) To generate a Golden Record representing the best information for a single patient across all the ways you know them.
