Digitizing Health Records Not Enough; Integrated, Interoperable Enterprises Vital to U.S. Healthcare Transformation
Date:7/16/2009

WASHINGTON, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The U.S. needs to go beyond simply digitizing health records and create integrated, interoperable enterprises if it hopes to truly transform the nation's healthcare system, Harris Corporation's Jim Traficant told a Capitol Hill steering committee yesterday.

Traficant, vice president of Healthcare Solutions for Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), told members of the Institute for e-Health Policy's Steering Committee on Telehealth and Healthcare Informatics that "Healthcare reform must go beyond digitizing a broken system to enabling an integrated, interoperable one.

"Healthcare transformation will come from a connected, integrated, interoperable system where health information is delivered on demand to clinical and benefits experts with security and privacy, and with patients in control of how their information is shared. That's the transformation the President and nation are looking for. That's the transformation our parents and our children are counting on us to deliver."

Truly integrated and interoperable healthcare enterprises will ultimately help improve patient care and control rising costs, he told the committee. These enterprises "will lead to transparency in pricing and performance, and enable us to attack fraud and waste - all with the ultimate result of reduced costs, improved outcomes, and predictable quality."

Traficant noted that some of the challenges facing healthcare today already have been solved in other industries with large networks, such as the intelligence community and government agencies. He suggested that the lessons learned - if not some of the solutions themselves - from relevant government experience can be applied to what he referred to as a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform
