Regional information networks:
out of San Francisco on efforts in Santa Barbara County to integrate the electronic medical record systems of area hospitals and physicians. Of course, there are HIPAA issues. Participants must be committed to only accessing appropriate information for their own TPO purposes; they must assure that their staffs only use and access information appropriately; and they must assure than no outside parties use their access rights to get into the system. Also, the information must be protected against improper change or editing. Lots of potential problems, but some definite opportunities.
