Along with several other organizations, AMIA is participating in the Coalition for an Informed Patient Identity Integrity Solution. The Coalition is working to delete prohibiting language from the fiscal year 2012 Labor, HHS Appropriations bill, and to substitute language that would have HHS conduct a study of the health information exchange patient data matching issue, and in addition have the Government Accountability Office (GAO) conduct a study of available technologies for data matching.
