Data Communication Methods in Healthcare: Modernizing Health Data Delivery

Data Communication Methods in Healthcare: Modernizing Health Data Delivery | #HITsm | Scoop.it
Chad Johnson's insight:

I’ve always been told that health IT is 5-10 years behind other industries.

Thanks to the electronic cattle prod that is Meaningful Use, times are changing.


An IT area currently undergoing tremendous growth is data communication methods, or data transport protocols. Previously, few health IT departments dabbled with the communication methods that were commonplace throughout therest of the IT landscape until the concept of external health information exchange was included in the HITECH Act.
