Reflecting the U.S. government’s goal of achieving widespread adoption of interoperable electronic health records to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare while maintaining the levels of security and privacy that consumers expect, this book expertly walks readers through the elements required for an efficient, well-run healthcare record management system. This book provides an update of the audit tools necessary for continued internal controls regardless of the system implemented. The author also provides an update as to where the industry stands in their push of interoperability and the increased use of data as an analytic tools.

Providing an application readers can adopt as a model, this important book also examines the infrastructure of electronic health records and how government criteria have impacted and will continue to impact both private and public marketplaces. This valuable resource also addresses how auditors, controllers, and healthcare providers can keep up with the market’s continued move towards an interoperable e-health world, without neglecting clinical and financial accountability in the delivery of healthcare.
