able to exchange data among internal applications as well as with
external partners and government agencies has always been a difficult
task. Lacking a comprehensive integration strategy, many organizations
find themselves creating new or customized solutions for each new
business challenge. This splintered approach invariably leads to a
heterogeneous environment that is difficult to manage and costly to
operate - which is why a large percentage of IT budgets are spent on
In the healthcare arena, one of
the reasons for these difficulties stems from increasingly stringent
regulations. Federal data initiatives arising from the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act, Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA), Public Health Information Network (PHIN),
and the National Health Information Network (NHIN) all dictate how data
must be formatted, archived and exchanged throughout its lifecycle. The
Medicare Modernization Act and the Medicare Information Technology
Architecture (MMA and MITA), Regional Health Information Organization
(RHIO) initiatives, Health Information Exchanges (HIE), and continually
evolving FDA safety laws also influence the way organizations in this
dynamic industry must exchange data - adding additional confusion and
complexity for health care organizations.
