patientRegistry is the Electronic Master Patient Index component of Leafsprout's Digital Health Suite.

The registry automatically reconciles and links different versions of patient demographics and different identifiers which exist in multiple hospitals/clinics within the region for a given person, e.g., the fact that James Brown id=123 in hospital A is the same person as Jim Brown id=B567 in hospital B.
