The EMPI/Identity team assists with issues such as:
- Duplicate records – multiple records for the same patient
- Overlays – single record with multiple patient information
- Demographic discrepancies and verifications – name, DOB, gender, SSN, etc.
- Patient fraud – false identities and any fraudulent activity within Health Link
