Patient ID Week is May 13-17, 2024. Join AHIMA and the Patient ID Now coalition as we raise visibility around the issues with patient misidentification and urge members of Congress to support HR 7379, the MATCH IT Act

Ways you can engage this week:

  • Share messages across your social networks to raise awareness and promote engagement throughout the week! Use the hashtag: #AHIMA #patientIDnow
  • Visit the AHIMA Action Center to take part in the new Patient ID Week campaign by writing to your members of Congress asking for their support of the MATCH IT Act.
  • Read the recent article in the Journal of AHIMA on Patient ID Week.
  • Share your story of your experiences with patient matching as a health information professional or as a patient. 

Let’s unite our voices to advocate for this crucial legislation that would improve patient safety and privacy by improving patient matching!
