Rhapsody uses its market leading expertise in patient and provider identification to the healthcare ecosystem by accurately identifying and linking patient and provider data. Rhapsody’s EMPI technology, rated No. 1 by KLAS, is deployed by the nation’s most successful healthcare systems and health information exchanges to manage 250 million lives. Their technology helps organizations deliver higher quality, better care coordination and greater business and clinical efficiency.

For healthcare technology leaders Rhapsody, coordinated, accountable, patient-centered care is reliant on access to quality patient data. Fragmented information scattered across multiple systems and settings of care within the network were a major hinder to making informed clinical decisions and real-time data exchange. Erroneous and incomplete records lead to sub-optimal outcomes and lost revenue. Further, inaccurate or outdated patient demographics, such as address information, create further operational and financial inefficiencies. Rhapsody partnered with Loqate to improve the quality of their patient data in order to provide a better customer experience and improve business efficiencies. 

Loqate created an enhanced address verification and geocode solution to sit within the Rhapsody Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) technology platform, MatchMetrix®.
