• The certification criteria should not be created for matching the patient algorithms or need organizations to use the particular type of algorithm. • To develop best practices and policies work with the industry to encourage consumers • Ongoing collaboration with federal agencies and industry on improving the identification of patient and matching procedures.

UNASKED AGREEMENT • Patient matching requires information • The procedure without notice of the patient is means sharing of physical health information without the notice of patient. • The Agreement which used for the patient matching authorization must list the certain parameters

Absence of transparency • The patients do not get notifications when they get matched. This disturbs the basic principles of security and error management.

Un-minimized data • Outside the health sector, citizen matching, is generally based on the unique identifier like; phone number, SSN or email. • A huge amount of extra private data is shared for patient matching, as the report does not let patient to specify their own criteria of matching.
