NAHAM's Patient Identity Integrity Toolkit
Did you miss the April 3 NAHAM webinar that rolled out the new NAHAM Patient Identity Integrity Toolkit?
If so, go here for a replay:
This webinar, just under an hour, with Q&A, highlights the main features and elements of the toolkit. These include question sets and checklists to help focus your Patient Access Staff, sample patient identity policies and procedures, such as newborn naming conventions, and numerous journal articles that highlight the importance of patient identity integrity strategies in our organizations.
If you are a NAHAM member, you may also access the PII Toolkit, as well as NAHAM's Joint Commission Survey Toolkit and NAHAM's CMS Survey Toolkit.

And special thanks to Committee Chair Michael Sciarabba, MPH, CHAM, and Committee members Nancy Farrington, CHAM, FHAM, and Carmen Voelz, FHAM, CHAM, FHFMA for participating as webinar presenters!
