This group of use cases focuses on functions usually performed by Health Information Managers in larger health services. This includes patient merges, patient duplicate and other reporting, and a number of use cases to help them to resolve IHI related exceptions.
The dedicated role of the HIM may not exist in a small health service, though ideally there will be a staff member or contractor who takes responsibility for maintaining data quality within the PAS, and who will be the actor in these use cases.
