The purpose of this quick paper is to demonstrate how Data Ladder’s DataMatch solution can be used to help federal healthcare and government-sponsored institutions to link administrative and health records across and between multiple states in the light of policies that prevent the use of unique identifiers to link data.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:
- Meeting the unique identifier challenge in federal record linkage projects
- Using data ladder’s fuzzy matching capabilities to perform record linkage
- Case study: West Virginia University – when disparate data and duplicates become overwhelming
- Case study: St. John’s associates – when manual methods fail & integrity is at risk
