Patient Identity Management

Ensuring accurate and secure patient data through specialized management systems.

At Jembi, we focus on Patient Identity Management, a critical component for maintaining data quality, integrity, and security in healthcare settings.

In the complex field of healthcare data, Patient Identity Management (PIM) is essential for ensuring data quality, integrity, and security. Jembi has been actively involved in initiatives that address the intricate challenges of patient data deduplication and identity verification across various settings.

Pioneering Projects

  1. Under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), Jembi identified Kenya as one of the inaugural countries for implementing a robust PIM solution. The project culminated in a comprehensive roadmap, developed during a hackathon in Cape Town and subsequently pilot tested.

  2. In Zambia, Jembi is actively involved in the Data Modernisation Initiative. These projects are not just about technology; they are about creating a unified, reliable source of patient data that enhances healthcare delivery.

  3. During December 2022, Jembi completed the core development of the MPI solution known as JeMPI, which includes the capability to scale to a national level, support environments with low connectivity and inconsistent power, and allow for incremental adoption.

Partnerships and Collaborations

Our collaboration with Palladium, the Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ), and the CDC has been instrumental in shaping our PIM solutions. These partnerships have allowed us to delve deep into the specific needs of each country, thereby tailoring our solutions for maximum impact. The recent technical workshop in Cape Town saw participation from more than 60 people from various organizations, emphasizing the collaborative nature of our projects.

Long-Term Impact

The PIM projects in Kenya and Zambia are designed for scalability and long-term sustainability. They serve as a blueprint for other countries facing similar challenges, thereby amplifying their impact beyond immediate implementation. The workshops held recently have led to the development of roadmaps for strengthening patient identity management and interoperability in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Nigeria.

Key Impacts

  1. Developed comprehensive roadmaps for PIM implementation in Kenya, Zambia, and Uganda.

  2. Conducted multiple workshops and hackathons, fostering cross-border knowledge sharing.

  3. Strengthened partnerships with key stakeholders like Palladium and CDC, enhancing Jembi's credibility.

  4. Developed roadmaps for strengthening patient identity management and interoperability in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Nigeria.
