  • Why Electronic Medical Records?
  • Software Sample/hardware samples
  • Barriers/Standards for EHR
  • HIPAA Security and Privacy Regulations
  • Medical data transmission requirements
  • Wireline and Wireless Telecommunications Services Security
  • Security of Patient Medical Records
  • References
  • Why Electronic Medical Records (EMRs)
  • Time spent filing and pulling patient charts, searching for charts
  • Time re-creating records if destroyed by natural disaster or accident
  • Cost of supplies to maintain charts
  • Cost of facility space for records (can better use of space be made?)
  • Storage and Backup Cost
  • Transcription services cost
  • Cost of doing nothing today
  • Better Security/Privacy Maintainable
  • Software/Hardware Supporting Digital Medical Records
  • Electronic Medical Record (EMR)Software
  • Soapware - check it out $300 Starting Price see:
  • e-MDs Electronic Medical Record Support Software
  • a4Healthsystems EMR and Access systems
  • Companion Technologies
  • Security and Privacy - all EMRs must be protected
  • Sample approach: indigenous authentication of digital information (US Patent 6,757,828 B1 of June 29, 2004) by Signa2
  • Backup routinely onto remote servers or storage offerings
  • What are the Barriers to EHR and e-Health Implementation?*
  • Lack of a Unique Personal Identifier
  • Lack of HIPAA Compliant Middleware
  • Lack of Incentives
  • No Paradigm or “First Mover” for Some System Components
  • Evolving Standards
  • Disincentives
  • Lack of an NHIN Architecture
  • [Fear of Cost/Benefit]
  • * [Corr 06]Barriers and SolutionsIdentifiers and Middleware
  • Lack of a Unique Personal Identifier:
  • Solutions:
  • Voluntary Personal Healthcare Identifier (IEEE-USA Voluntary Healthcare Identifier Position Statement, 17 June 2004)
  • Center for Certification of Health Information Technology Multiple ID Approach (Provider ID + Provider Unique Personal ID)
  • DOD Common Access Card Model
  • Lack of HIPAA Compliant Middleware:
  • Solutions:
  • RHIO Contracts
  • Marketplace Solutions
  • Shortcomings:
  • Public Health and Research Interfaces may not be included
  • HIPAA compliantIdentification, Authentication, and Access* [Corr 2006]EHR Standards Evolution*
  • International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) from ICD-9 to ICD-10
  • ASCI X12 Version 4010 to ASCI X12 Version 5010 (HIPAA Business Transactions)
  • National Council for Prescription Drug Programs Telecommunication Standards from version 5.1 to version D.0
  • Conversion of all standards to XML
  • * [Corr 06]HIPAA Security and Privacy Regulations
  • Health Insurance Portability Assurance Act (HIPAA)
  • Security - Required stronger and more focused provision of security around medical information (supports maintaining of information privacy)
  • Privacy - Enforces increase in privacy protections for medical information (Not just speaking privacy- required under penalty if failure occurs)
  • Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Data Requirements
  • Page of text for entering and storing non-image information
  • Less than 64 Kbytes(large file)
  • Image Data
  • (Refer to estimate table)
  • Medical Images Data Transmission Requirements**Source: Ferrante, F.E.,“Evolving Telemedicine/eHealth Technology,” Telemedicine and e-Health, Vol 11, Number 3, June 2005, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc Publisher, ISSN-1530-5627.Wireless Telecommunications Services
