National Health IT Week
This week is the Sixth Annual National Health IT Week. NHIT Week 2011 runs through Sept. 16. Participants include provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups working together to elevate national attention to the value of advancing health IT.
Dr. Braithwaite, our Chief Medical Officer and contributing author of HIPPA, reminds us that comprehensive health care reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.
Security measures need to be in place to help health care institutions and health information networks secure remote access to confidential health information in a cost-effective, flexible, and scalable manner without disrupting provider workflow.
Anakam Identity Services Two-Factor Authentication has been implemented in government and healthcare institutions in provider and patient portals and health information exchanges across the country. Despite fears that patients would avoid using portals with an extra security mechanism, patient response has proven the opposite. Patients are comfortable with the extra effort to protect their information and actually increase their adoption rate after implementation.
