Occam for Lab + Radiology Groups

Build a wholistic view of patient data without duplicates.

Occam provides the ability to dependably tie orders from referring providers to the right patient records in their clinical and business systems.

Labs and Radiology Groups receive patient information from hundreds of sources, each with their own data quality issues and identifiers to keep track of. Those quality issues make records hard to match and result in duplicate rates of 25% or higher.

Stop duplicates before they happen by incorporating Occam’s Bulletproof patient matching into order interfaces. Assign an enterprise identifier to each person record and keep track of demographic information and identifiers from referring providers.

How We Help

Foundational Benefits

Make your data whole
Shrink manual work by 80%
Solve patient data conflicts
Auto-link 95 to 98% of your records with Bulletproof Patient Matching even when information is missing or wrong, while filtering out false-positives like twins and junior/senior

Generate a Golden Record for your patients with Master Data Management capability purpose-built for healthcare, without the expense and overhead of a giant MDM solution

Get Clean and Stay Clean

Gracefully incorporate patient data shared by referring providers without creating duplicates.

  • Resolve existing duplicates

    The key to transitioning from an accession-focused world to a patient-focused one is identifying all the records that exist for every patient and linking them together with a common enterprise identifier

  • Prevent new duplicates caused by order interfaces

    Determine whether the patient exists in your system or needs to be created even when there is little demographic information to go on

  • Protect patient data

    Prevent overwrites of current demographic information in your systems with stale data submitted by referring provider. Selectively update demographic and insurance information only when the referrer’s data is newer.

  • Keep track of outside identifiers

    Make it easy for customers to integrate your results by keeping track of their patient identifiers and demographic information

  • Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)

    Make sure patients aren’t undercounted or over-counted in your analytics solution

  • Insurance mapping

    Make it easier to use the insurance information included with electronic orders by mapping referring provider insurance values to yours, one time

How It Works

Get data in and out of Occam using the method that works best for you. Connect via API, flat-file, or HL7. Make Occam aware of the patients/members in your source systems, then get an Occam ID and Golden record in return, in real-time or batch. Integrate
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.

Occam Research Automation shrinks the number of matches that require manual intervention, but there will always be matches that require human involvement. Occam’s task management workflow lets you prioritize the work that is left and makes identity decisions easier. Manage
