HIPAA and EMR/EHR

 

The need for a high security for Medical Records is very critical given the context of the internet and its abuse, HIPAA provides laws that need to be implemented as part of any EMR or EHR solution. Innovating security of patient record and its interface to the entire eco system of Health Care providers like Labs, insurance, pharmacies, other providers etc is very critical and complex.

Hence it becomes imperative that EMR/EHR solution vendor or technology consultants are chosen based on their technology experience in providing enterprise solutions, their understanding of the HIPAA requirements and domain competence.
