SearchHealthIT original infographic: Federal health IT activity
This article is part of the July 2013 issue of Pulse
From electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchange, ICD-10 conversion, meaningful use mandates to data privacy and security regulations, healthcare organizations are slowly, but surely, making headway in implementing many different initiatives. The opening months of 2013 saw the federal government offer providers a number of resources to ease the strain of new technology and workflow adoption, as well as implementing legislative measures to keep IT leaders accountable to policy. This exclusive SearchHealthIT infographic summarizes what resources are available, from tools to improve HIE and meaningful use audits, to the final installment of the HIPAA omnibus rule and updated certification standards for EHRs.
