Patient ID Week

This week is Patient ID Week! May 13-17, 2024. 

Patient ID Week is an annual awareness week put on by the Patient ID Now coalition, of which AHIMA is a founding member, to draw attention to the importance of improving patient identification and matching. The main focus of Patient ID week this year will be the MATCH IT Act of 2024.

Please utilize the AHIMA Patient ID Week social media toolkit to raise awareness for the MATCH IT Act and how it could improve patient identification and matching.

Don’t forget to head to the AHIMA Action Center with our email campaigns to Congress, and ensure you take part in those as well.
