In my recent video interview with Lindy Benton, CEO of MEA|NEA, I came away with the feeling that there are a wide variety of simple healthcare IT solutions for many of the problems that annoy us in healthcare. In Lindy’s case, they work on solving the secure document transfer problem in healthcare. They work mostly with claims remediation and other billing related documentation, but the secure document transfer applies to a lot of areas of healthcare.

As a tech person, I was interested in how rather simple technology can solve such an important problem. However, Lindy and I talk about why many organizations still haven’t adopted these technologies in their office (Spoiler: The divide between billing organizations and IT). We also talk about why EHR vendors aren’t just providing these types of secure document transfer solutions.
