Mirth Match

Introduction

Mirth Match follows the success of the Mirth Connect Integration Engine by introducing another key middleware component to the Health IT open source community.

Mirth Match is engineered to be an enterprise class Entity Identification Service built on open standards and leveraging the strengths of existing open source components to provide a powerful, scalable and comprehensive solution capable of handling common healthcare Master Data Management (MDM) patterns such as Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), Master Provider Index, Facility index or simple member list deduplication.

Built as a reference implementation of the HSSP Entity Identification Service (EIS) specification, Mirth Match correlates or cross references identifiers from Patients or Providers (Entities) located within disparate systems or sources. The standard EIS webservice interfaces provide the common thread by which entity data can be indexed. The unique identifier and standard way to search, retrieve and manage entity data will allow healthcare applications and healthcare enterprises to find, exchange and reference entity data while maintaining the data’s context and associations.

Mirth Match is ideal for use in Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), Hospitals, and other healthcare organizations with multiple Health Information Systems requiring an EMPI. Mirth Match, along with Mirth Connect is also perfect for augmenting new or existing EHRs and EMRs with powerful interoperability capabilities.
