Business Need

The health IT industry has spent less than one-tenth of what banking and telecommunication enterprises have spent to improve information flow and cross-boundary collaboration. Legacy health records and medical delivery systems still in use today were never designed for transparency and portability, creating a collective system that isolates information from key decision makers. At the same time, healthcare providers must maintain compliance with an evolving set of government-mandated requirements. Considering the rising costs of healthcare, efficient health IT information technology is all the more necessary to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs, and increase quality of care throughout the nation.

  • Implement effective health information exchange and adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) which rely on industry standards such as Health Level 7 International (HL7) and Clinical Data Architecture (CDA)
  • Respond to the health reform requirements and timeframes of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
  • Explore effective healthcare delivery in rural and remote locations, including telemedicine for Veterans and other beneficiaries of our nation’s public health system
  • Maintain privacy, integrity, and standardization of health data (for example, through HIPAA, HL7, clinical quality measures or provider data)
  • Reducing fraud, waste, and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid
  • Incorporate the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) and its accountability goals
  • Improve public and private health through effective oversight and regulations
  • Enhance government effectiveness in carrying out complex health-related programs
