Health IT Interoperability, HIE, and mHealth — #HITsm Chat Highlights

Posted on June 8, 2013 I Written By

Katie Clark is originally from Colorado and currently lives in Utah with her husband and son. She writes primarily for Smart Phone Health Care, but contributes to several Health Care Scene blogs, including EMR Thoughts, EMR and EHR, and EMR and HIPAA. She enjoys learning about Health IT and mHealth, and finding ways to improve her own health along the way.

A couple of the Health IT regulars got together again this week to video chat during the #HITsm Chat Highlights. Here are some of their thoughts. If you want to participate, be sure to comment!


Topic One: How far off is a solution to the problem of #healthIT interoperability? Is one actually within reach?

Topic Two: Is patient consent being overshadowed by sustainability as the most significant obstacle to #HIE?

Topic 3: What is the role of #telehealth and #mHealth in #healthcare reform and patient engagement?


Topic Four: Are competing deadlines (e.g., Stage 2 Meaningful Use v. ICD-10) going to be responsible for undermining healthcare reform?

 

Topic Five: Who or what will be most influential in determining the next phase in the evolution of #healthIT?
