National Health IT Week

September 16-20 has been designated National Health IT Week by the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).

Health IT Week will highlight the path to Interoperability, which depends on five elements: "adoption and optimization of electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchange (HIE) services, standards, financial and clinical incentives, privacy and security, and rules of engagement."

"National Health IT Week raises awareness of Health Information Technology’s power to improve the health and health care of patients all across the nation, and at lower cost."

Privacy and security will be addressed in a Tuesday, 9/17, webinar during which policy chief Jodi Daniel will update HIE governance activities.

To build trust among HIE participants, low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics services are being utilized for access governance as well as proactively detect patient data privacy breaches.

Download a white paper on patient privacy breach detection. Learn how to proactively identify unauthorized breaches of patient data privacy, even by authorized users - with no hardware and no on-site software.
