Getting the intended effect of the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) with Open Source Technology
The current state of affairs among large Health IT systems such as, EMRs, patient portals and Practice Management tools is a bit of a mess. These systems lack interoperability and as a result healthcare efficiencies and advancements are grinding to a halt. This runs counter to HIPAA's main goal of ensuring private portability of patient health information (PHI). Yet it seems that Health IT vendors are still missing the point of HIPAA.

The Paper will cover:
The benefits that Open Source technology solutions can offer
How Open Source solutions can improve IT system interoperability
How lack of interoperable systems can lead to HIPAA violations, clinical errors and inefficiencies
Current Open Source solutions that are being used by enterprise healthcare systems
