When one considers the Aging American population with the growing Costs of healthcare in the US, which continues to place an increasing burden on the American Tax Payers, taking a larger amount of their income each year, with some losing Access to healthcare completely, it becomes very clear, that we are headed for a National Crisis.
Everyone needs healthcare. There are a number of State Initiatives proposed and enrolled Legislation as well as Gubernatorial efforts through Executive Orders, Budget Recommendations or Planning Commissions related to Healthcare Reform or Health Information Technology Initiatives.
Health Information Technology (HIT) is the Key Elements for meeting the Challenges for steeply skyrocketing or increasing healthcare costs and short falls in, Care Delivery Organizations (CDOs).
Healthcre Care is shifting from predominantly episodic, acute care to, prevention and management of Chronic Diseases, where widespread deployment of health information technology, including Personal Health Records, offer important advantages, such as individuals' involvement in the Management of their Healthcare Delivery Services.
Is health information technology (HIT) the answer to our healthcare crisis? A successful implementation of a Nationwide Electronic Health Records (EHRs) through the plan deployment of NHIN Project, requires the assembly and efficient coordination of competing healthcaare services providers organizations, and information technology vendors.
The Deployment of the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) face many challenges, including:
HIT applications integration
speed, scale and reach
advanced network management
alignment with healthcare services business.
The recently signed, Comprehensive Healthcare Reform Bill means, more people will be enrolled for healthcare services, new regulatory, security, and technical challenges will be placed on the Healthcare Industry, in spite of the nearly $ 2.5 trillions spent in 2009,
This pressure will be, especially pronounced on the healthcare services providers' network, where moving, protecting, and prioritizing data while meeting Regulatory, end users and business needs can be extremely difficult. What is the Solutions? A Healthcare Business-Driven Network (HBDN), which offers a pure Packet-based, all Optical/IP, Multi-Service National Transport (backhaul) Network Infrastructure, using optical Ethernet throughout this National "Network of Networks.)
The new Healthcare Business-Driven Network (HBDN) will be built around, and for Smart Devices (i, e, iPad, iPhone, etc), supports Advanced Security Technologies and Next Generation Network Management Capabilities that will Respond to the Healthcare Business Requirements, and Policies.
