Description
  • Abstract

    The goal of the Patient Matching Algorithm Challenge is to bring about greater transparency and data on the performance of existing patient matching algorithms, spur the adoption of performance metrics for patient data matching algorithm vendors, and positively impact other aspects of patient matching such as deduplication and linking to clinical data. Participants will be provided a data set and will have their answers evaluated and scored against a master key. Up to 6 cash prizes will be awarded with a total purse of up to $75,000.00.

    The test dataset used in the ONC Patient Matching Algorithm Challenge is available for download by students, researchers, or anyone else interested in additional analysis and patient matching algorithm development. More information about the Patient Matching Algorithm Challenge can be found: https://www.patientmatchingchallenge.com/.The dataset containing 1 million patients was split into eight files of alphabetical groupings by the the patient's last name, plus an additional file containing test patients with no last name recorded (Null). All files should be downloaded and merged for analysis.
