Likewise, if you want to move Health IT data between systems, today’s organizations need the right translator to make this possible. While this is not a problem of “language” per se, the issue is with systems not being able to effectively talk to each other.

Building your Health IT House

There was a time when most Americans built their own homes.  Think of log cabins being crafted by hardy individuals -- cutting the trees, hewing logs and fitting the doors.  Now, that method is a romantic idea, but almost nobody does that any more.
 Unless you have a lot of free time on your hands — you don’t build your own home.  Even more, the people you hire to build your home don’t build it — they usually subcontract to specialists (plumbers, electricians, HVAC, etc.).

Why Notarize when you can Optimize your Identity Proofing?

Secure Direct Messaging requires trust between two parties exchanging medical records.  This trust is established with a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Digital Certificate. Previously, LOA3 (Level of Assurance 3) in person authentication was required to identify proof an individual attached to the certification. While this process is straightforward, the inconvenience of having identification papers notarized has been a barrier to acquiring a PKI certificate.

For HIT Exchange, Should Your Head be in the Clouds?

With the incentives in recent years for creating digital healthcare data there are more opportunities than ever to share, exchange and use that data in innovative solutions. These solutions have a lot of promise including improving patient care, managing costs, and helping develop new treatments. However, even though the data may be digital, there is still a major barrier. Actually getting to and/or moving the data remain difficult. (Ok I know that the quality/computability of the data can also be an issue but that is a topic for a different time). The problem usually boils down to the fact the data lives in any number of different systems and managed by different organizations. And though there have been standards around healthcare IT for decades, the actual adoption and/or implementation of those standards had been anything but.

Data Transport: The Other Component of Interoperability

I was at a recent HIT conference, and noted that several speakers talked about interoperability. What each of them failed to say was that transport is a big barrier. Their interoperability emphasis was on the complexity of payload – the data that will be exchanged - ranging from identifying and matching patients, reconciling coding (LOINC –vs- SNOMED), defining minimal datasets, etc. Each of these speakers failed to mention the other component of interoperability (What is interoperability?).

The Coming Revolution in Health Data — Ubiquity

In 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer.  A bone scan indicated that the cancer may have metastasized to the bone. A surgery was scheduled to remove and biopsy part of a rib in question.  The surgeon was to review the bone scan before surgery, but he didn’t. That information didn’t get to him, and he removed another part of my rib.
