Example 6: Identifying Correct Facility Names and Updating Changed Facility Names

A January 2011 search for the address of the St Edward Mercy Medical Center in Fort Smith, Arkansas, brought up a hospital which is advertised as the “Advance Care Hospital of Fort Smith.” The intended hospital was present but listed as the 16th result for “Selected businesses at this address.”

To resolve this problem, EMNet researchers performed internet searches and used the NEDI-USA database to determine that the hospital name listed on Google Maps was located within St. Edward Mercy Medical Center, and that the main hospital was at that location.
