Patient Matching Transformed at Michigan HIN with Master Patient Index & Common Key

This case study looks at a health information network that has gone from zero uniquely identified patients to 7.6 million – and nearly all major health systems statewide are set to participate in its Common Key Service.

Care coordination — the kind facilitated by our...
