About the Rhapsody Enterprise Master Person Index solution (EMPI)

Rhapsody EMPI streamlines and manages the patient identification process across multiple healthcare systems and organizations to reduce errors. The solution supports healthcare organizations’ trust in the quality of their identity data, enabling personalized care, promoting health equity, and advancing public health initiatives.

We see it not just as a technological improvement, but as a commitment to the future of healthcare in Scotland. This transformation symbolizes our dedication to innovation, efficiency, and, ultimately, the wellbeing of patients. Together with Rhapsody we are not just modernizing infrastructure, we’re shaping a healthier tomorrow.”

Steven Flockhart, Digital and Security Director at NHS National Services Scotland, commented, “Keeping all healthcare information related to each person updated, complete, and correct is a critical factor in supporting safe, effective, and efficient patient care.
