2018 - March Newsletter

Important Announcements

Based on the September 2017 newsletter, we have begun redirecting to a new domain model in the integration environment. We have also announced that we will begin redirecting in the production environment starting March 20th 2018. The change will not take place on March 20th, but may occur at any time after that without notice.

March Changes in Review

**UPDATE** New Match system is being released March 21, 2018 March 28, 2018. This is a backwards compatible change. The benefits of the new system include much better performance on Match-by-ID requests, additional rich formatted person details in the match results, improved system stability, and better accuracy.

Upcoming June Changes
