BNA Launches Health IT Law & Industry Report(TM) for Firms Responding to Over $30 Billion in Stimulus Funds for Health Care IT Implementation
ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To help clarify and analyze the framework of regulation, compliance, and federal and state privacy laws that will govern the more than $30 billion in stimulus funding for health information technology (HIT), specialized news and information publisher BNA has launched the Health IT Law & Industry Report. This daily Report is the only comprehensive and nonpartisan source available to attorneys, hospitals, and vendors who need news and analysis on the issues surrounding electronic health records.
"Over $30 billion in federal stimulus funding for health IT is transforming the legal and business landscape," said Lisa M. Rockelli, Managing Editor of BNA's Health IT Law & Industry Report. "Hospitals, IT vendors, practitioners—everyone will be scrambling to implement secure and interoperable systems that answer the President's mandate to improve quality of care. People need a single source of information on regulation, compliance, privacy, and 'meaningful use' certification standards. BNA is that one source."
BNA's Health IT Law & Industry Report covers federal and state regulations and standards on Medicare and Medicaid stimulus funding. It decodes 'meaningful use' definitions, certification standards, and the details of hospital implementation. It also keeps IT vendors abreast of HIT federal and state standards on data breaches, privacy, fraud and abuse, and HIT certification issues to ensure compliance and interoperability.
The Report features trend articles on HIT opportunities and challenges, contributed by an editorial advisory board of legal and industry experts. It also includes compliance news and information from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights.
