HIT. Health Information Technology. Remember the acronym as it is going to revolutionize your health and wellness life.
And you can take that to the bank.
Although Obamacare has become a political lightning rod, it also has struck at the heart of information reform. That’s where HIT comes in. The information required to manage the healthcare ecosystem – patients, providers, insurers – must be protected so that the privacy of the patient (YOU) is protected. And lets not get bogged down with the initial tech problems involved. They will pass.
HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (Wikipedia) – another acronym to remember in case you missed it the first time around.
But as the following post suggests, you and I are a large part of the pace of information flow as we vote, participate, or impede the eventual changes that will come.
