Abstract: Health information exchange across multiple organizations requires a method or algorithm to optimally link records of the same individuals using demographic data. Selecting the best record linkage algorithm requires an evaluation to determine its sensitivity and specificity. This evaluation is facilitated by a large database test bed that closely reflects a real world population and takes into account the potential data entry errors that unfortunately occur in real-world databases. This study investigated the synthesis of such a database.
