The first hospital in Boise, Idaho, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center is now the region's leading trauma center with a network of hospitals, clinics, cardiac sites and a nephrology center. Its excellence and growth are the result of a long-time commitment to clinical technology. Since the turn of the century, when the hospital brought the first x-ray machines to Idaho, it has placed great emphasis on the technology of care.

Today, its technology vision extends beyond clinical technology to advanced information technology ­ such as's EMerge, an enterprise-wide master person index (EMPI) solution. The hospital implemented this software, which embeds Vality Technology's INTEGRITY Real Time data matching engine, to identify patients at registration and to track and integrate patient (and provider and payer) information across the varied systems of the hospital and its partners.
