AHIMA and ONC Release Project US@ Companion Guide

AHIMA and ONC Release Project US@ Companion Guide

We are proud to have collaborated with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) on the Project US@ Companion Guide to ONC’s recently released Final Version 1.0 of the Technical Specification for Patient Addresses. The Companion Guide helps industry stakeholders translate the technical specifications into operational best practices for representing patient addresses to improve patient identification and matching. Carmen Smiley, information technology specialist in the Office of Technology at ONC, said the collaboration between AHIMA and ONC “resulted in an innovative approach to improved patient matching, setting a precedent for bringing together technical and operational experts working to achieve the same goal.”


Also just published: Our new white paper, Recommended Data Elements for Capture in the Master Patient Index, contains updated naming policy recommendations, to help enable accurate patient matching.
