EXPERIENCE SPEAKS VOLUMES
 

Since starting Just Associates in 2002, we have had the distinct pleasure of working with some of the country’s most prestigious and forward-thinking healthcare provider systems and networks.  They have relied on us to clean up their Master Patient Indexes and ensure the integrity of their data.  We have helped them prepare for and implement new EHR systems, fine tuning their MPI and EMPI algorithms to improve accuracy in patient record matching and better identifying possible duplicates.  Our customers are now enjoying the benefits of our IDManage® ongoing MPI support services, a solution that evaluates and resolves new duplicates on a continual basis. We’ve also helped our customers design patient access processes that reduce the chances of misidentifying registering patients, while keeping patient convenience in mind.  And, so much more.
