Security: Health regulators demonstrate new EHR exchange standards
The Dept. of Health & Human Services and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs team up to demonstrate the latest in medical data exchange security.
Regulators at the Depts. of Health & Human Services and Veterans Affairs this week demonstrated new standards for transmitting sensitive health information in a manner that protects private data.
The demonstration builds on a recent notice of proposed rule-making released by HHS's Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, which is soliciting public comment on rules for secure data communication for health information exchange networks.
