2013 WEDI Report

2013 WEDI Report

  This is an update of a 1993 WEDI foundation report on healthcare automation.  The report has several items that deal with patient identification.

On page 17 the report states the first patient engagement recommendation as "Standardize the patient identification process acoss the healthcare system.

On page 54 the report makes a HUGE MISTAKE when it recommends "Use the Social Security Number as a patient identification number."
