Enhancing Patient Safety when Potential Overlay is Identified Using IBM MDM

Issue:

The MDM application leaves a PO record in an entity. This allows a search based off the PO ID or the PO Demographics to return an incorrect patient. Currently the application prevents returning the ID when requested which helps prevent sending out incorrect data. By leaving the record as a member of an entity it's demographics could contribute to returning the wrong patient data.

Solution:

Full quarantine of a record with a PO status by removing the record from all entities until the PO has been resolved.

Note:

This may be best explained by showing. We would be more than happy to set some time up to review.

    Hi Christen,

    Sorry for not getting back to you earlier.

    So the feedback I have received from our engineering team is that making a singleton entity of a member with PO, would create a lot of unnecessary traffic for event/entity management and would severely impact downstream systems.

    We do recognize that these are very valid requirements, but our approach to handle these scenarios in the current MDM SE/AE architecture may not necessarily match to the solution you expressed here .. (Full quarantine of a record with a PO status by removing the record from all entities until the PO has been resolved.).

    We are currently working full steam on our Next Gen MDM and we will design and implement a better solution for this in Next Gen matching.

    Thanks

    Christen - we had a bit of an issue tracking down the requirement. Now that we have it we will evaluate and respond directly if setting up a call is required.

    Agreed... an overlayed record should become a singleton right away

    This is a much needed change. Great idea!
