4.3.14.6.2 MatchGrade

A Master Patient Index (MPI) assessment of whether a candidate patient record is a match or not. This code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/match-grade defines the following codes:

Code Display Definition
certain Certain Match This record meets the matching criteria to be automatically considered as a full match.
probable Probable Match This record is a close match, but not a certain match. Additional review (e.g. by a human) may be required before using this as a match.
possible Possible Match This record may be a matching one. Additional review (e.g. by a human) SHOULD be performed before using this as a match.
certainly-not Certainly Not a Match This record is known not to be a match. Note that usually non-matching records are not returned, but in some cases records previously or likely considered as a match may specifically be negated by the matching engine.
