Part Two: e-Health Innovations - Electronic Health Records

With the passing of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, the adminstration and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) created a new incentive for the physician offices to implement Electronic Health Records (EHR). As a result of this legislation, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that approximately 90 percent of doctors and 70 percent of hospitals will be using comprehensive electronic health records within the next decade.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed earlier this year, promises to expand coverage, control health care costs, and improve health care delivery system. This opens opportunities for technology innovation and new business models. Healthcare IT can make a difference in a number of areas including:
  • Adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR), especially in small physician practices
  • Technical Integration and interoperability of data/systems and key information such as Medical Records (EMR), Personal Health Records (PHR), and remote data capture via web or device and patient diaries.
  • Technologies related to patient privacy and security
In this session, the panelists will explore the changed landscape in Healthcare IT. The expert panel will discuss how the new landscape will spur innovation and create new opportunities and  ways for entrepreneurs to capitalize on the white spaces in healthcare IT.

This panel is a joint production of the Software & Services, Life Sciences and Wireless SIGs.
