ARCADIA, Calif.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–NextGate, the Enterprise Master Index leader, today announced that Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) has selected NextGate MatchMetrixTM 7 as their Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) solution for a Patient Centric View and future Health Information Exchange (HIE) and Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) initiatives.
“MatchMetrix 7 provided the features we needed to match patients between our HIS and EMR systems and support all future requirements for participating in RHIO and HIE opportunities”

SIH identified a need to replace its existing EMPI solution to obtain leading edge functionality at a reasonable price, to both meet its current single patient view needs and position it for future HIE initiatives. After careful review of the offerings in the market, it selected MatchMetrix 7 EMPI Suite as its patient matching solution.
