Health Insurance Exchange/Marketplace Privacy and Security Issues, 22nd National HIPAA Summit

22nd National HIPAA Summit


Our healthcare system is in critical condition; its costs are out of control, and it’s failing to keep us healthy. Medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy. We spend twice as much per person to pay for a healthcare system whose results rank last of all industrialized nations. Paper information systems can never solve these problems! A key component of health reform legislation is the push towards ubiquitous electronic health records (EHRs) supported by nationwide health information exchange. This move toward a highly digitized healthcare environment also carries with it new risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data. Higher quality, lower cost healthcare can evolve only if we incorporate interoperable health information exchange and standardized, secure electronic communication of administrative and clinical transactions.
