Duplicate medical records refer to the occurrence of two or more identical or nearly identical copies of the same patient’s medical information in a healthcare system. Overlays are the additional information added to an existing medical record, which can result in duplicates if not properly managed. Both of these issues can lead to confusion and errors in patient care, so it is important to have systems in place to prevent and detect duplicates and overlays.
Vim’s technology is context aware, meaning we launch our solutions based on the patient in context. Our technology matches patients based on key data points to eliminate the risk of duplication.
