Who is Waldo? Watch and learn the unforeseen impact of finding out!

Waldo is a health care end user and patient. In the context of a systemic electronic health record (EHR) and data exchange initiative, managing Waldo’s identity directly impacts major business processes associated with client identity resolution. These evolved processes need to constantly generate an identity that is valid between numerous health delivery organizations. The best place where this can be done reliably is at the point of registration, but can the already constrained resources and stretched healthcare system afford the change?

Follow Waldo through his patient identity journey and discover the underestimated process impacts and some mitigation approaches to manage them.
