Key Health Care IT Trends
The good news is that primary focus now seems to be squarely on improving the overall quality of health care and the reduction of human errors.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which became law in March, represents a big victory for the Obama Administration. The president has never been shy about his goals for health care reform.
Neither has he hesitated in the push to take all medical records digital, as is evidenced by the electronic health records incentive programs outlined by the HITECH Act and by the health IT provisions in the ACA.
But such large-scale change in such a small amount of time often means many questions and very limited access to answers. Attorneys in the law firm of Hall Render Killian Heath and Lyman want to change that-or at least the "limited access to answers" part. That's why they have launched a microsite dedicated to health care reform information and resources.
In a press release announcing the site's launch, Louisville, Ky.-based Hall Render attorney Rene Savrise said:
The changes stemming from health care reform will certainly impact all areas of our industry. Through our ... site, we will be able to keep executives in the health care industry in Louisville and across the nation informed on recent changes, implications and news.
