A2. Analysis of Technology
Two organizations migrating to a common health information system would need a system that meets current regulatory requirements, meets the needs of the combined organization and their practice environment. The implementation of a common health information system would require an interdisciplinary group of forward thinking innovators, and an interoperable electronic medical record system that includes standard nursing terminology.
The technology needed in this scenario that would make this combination successful consist of network security measures to ensure security of protected health information under the federal requirements of HIPPA …show more content…
Interoperability is the way to share electronically captured information both within and across organizational systems. According to the Acrobatiq website, the interoperability of a health information system is especially important in healthcare organizations, where the sharing of patient information is necessary for coordination of care, case management, emergency services, and patient referrals. When information systems are compatible by a variety of different health organizations, the exchange of patient information is more efficient and allows healthcare providers to provide care in a more proficient and timely manner (Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2014b). Interoperability also allows healthcare providers to share information without the fear of paper copies of patient information being lost or improperly accessed during transit by fax. I have an example of why organizational interoperability is really important. I worked at a major hospital in North
