HL7 and HIPAA : What You Need to Know

With the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) [1], any conversation regarding HIPAA [2] and HL7 [3] changed dramatically. ARRA [4] is driving significant changes in healthcare integration and IT initiatives. Within ARRA, HITECH [5] – Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health – provisions are driving health IT reform with a new concept called Meaningful Use. Healthcare providers and vendors are charting new courses to adopt the guidelines and realize the benefits.

Corepoint Health offers resources to aid in better understanding of the HL7 Standard [6] and HITECH and Meaningful Use [7].
