Duplicate records, lack of matching patients remains an issue
from By Scott E. Rupp
There's a big problem with duplicate patient records across the U.S., according to the American Health Information Management Association.

According to a recent survey, 72 percent face these troubles each week, while less than half said they have a quality assurance step in their registration process.
