When you go to the emergency room, how do doctors distinguish your name and medical records from someone else with the same name? The answer is that the hospital relies on an Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), a centralized patient matching platform used to identify and accurately link disconnected patient data across multiple systems and sites of care. It’s a critical component of any healthcare provider’s patient database or Health Information Exchange (HIE).

NextGate is the global leader in healthcare enterprise identification software. Recently, they became the only provider of a fully-managed, cloud-based EMPI as a Service solution. Available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the SaaS model allows customers to easily deploy the EMPI without having to install the software on their own servers.

In order to accelerate their product launch, NextGate partnered with Logicworks to architect, build, and support their AWS deployment.
