merging avoiding duplicatesEdit

I have about 250 hospital names, addresses and URLs in and around Chicago. There are many groups around the world that have such lists. There is no central repository of such data. I would like Wikidata to become it.

I can get my data into a spreadsheet. I would aksi like to encourage others to do the same, and it is very likely that datasets will overlap. How do we prevent this?

Which will also address a concern: how do I know if my data is already in Wikidata?
