Healthcare Information Technology and Standards

The  ability to exchange and use health information electronically is  important in order to improve healthcare quality and safety.  Interoperability is critical to future exchange of health data to reduce  medical errors, improve quality, and contribute to medical research. In  order for this to happen, it is necessary to come to agreement on a  variety of data standards. It is also critical that health data is  secure from all types of threats and technological vulnerabilities.
