How the Right Health Information Technology Solution Can Pump New Life Into State Healthcare Programs | White Paper
Nearly one-third of every dollar in U.S. healthcare goes toward administrative and other costs, and paper processes still drive the industry. Simply digitizing paper is not the answer to increasing efficiencies and patient safety or reducing costs. This paper discusses the benefits of an integrated solution that encompasses Electronic Health Records, Personal Health Records, a Health Information Exchange framework for a total solution that meets the needs of payers, providers, states, and patients. The proven solution also ensures compliance with HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) security requirements.
The paper includes three case studies of how ACS customized its total solution to solve the business problems and meet unique objectives of three states: Alabama, Missouri, and Wyoming. It also presents information about leveraging the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
