Welcome to the Healthcare & Technology blog. After 17 years in technology, including various leadership roles, and as a Registered Nurse with a Master of Science in Healthcare Informatics, I turn my attention to HIPAA Regulations and compliance requirements for Healthcare.
As VP Business Development for the HIPAA Survival Guide, I have been able to leverage prior technical knowledge and understanding of the HIPAA Regulations to help Covered Entities and Business Associates become successful in the HIPAA Compliance Initiatives.
Healthcare is, and remains, one of the most pressing challenges facing our nation (and the world) in the 21st century. Almost any discussion related to improving healthcare, whether it implicates reducing costs or improving patient safety and satisfaction, usually has technology as a core component.
Technology, in and of itself, will not solve problems, in fact, it may add some. However, when used properly with the right compliance tools, technology will contribute to the transformation of healthcare, as it has in many other industries.
