    ​​With facilities merging and integrating their MPIs has anyone implemented enterprise-wide MPI maintenance?
    If so, could you share some info? I'd to know job positions and descriptions/responsibilities, reporting structure, etc.
    Thanks,

    We have an empi currently where we maintain multiple Rev Cycle/EMR systems mostly due to acquisitions over the years. Currently 2 of our 4 MPIs are part of our empi solution. I don't have good job descriptions to share as we too are working on those but if you have any specific questions I could help answer from my org's perspective let me know.

    ​We are talking about merging our into an EDW (Enterprise Data Warehouse), as are moving to EPic.   Logic for auto-merge is my biggest concern as I do not want to merge twins/Jr or Seniors.

    Has anyone solved this problem in the industry?

    Epic has a process for this and a job description.  It is built as part of the HIM modules.  In the epic design this role also includes documentation corrections as well as addressing duplicate patients.  This is a fairly complex job, usually needs more than one employee with good analysis and problem solving skills.
