Richard Stephenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of RISARC, attended the Spring Conference of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) held in Sacramento to speak about the Nationwide Health Information Network.
The Nationwide Health Information Network is a federally-sponsored initiative for the electronic exchange of healthcare information developed under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Stephenson spoke about the financial and organizational benefits of this new digital infrastructure, which allows health care providers, consumers and insurers to safely and securely exchange medical records in compliance with U.S. privacy laws.
Said Stephenson: “Agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, are using the Nationwide Health Information Network along with many of the nation’s private health care providers. Increase usage of the Nationwide Health Information Network will have a profound and positive impact on the bottom line of healthcare providers in America.”
