Traficant: Advanced IT will Provide Immediate Access to Vital Patient

Information

FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jim Traficant, vice president of Harris Corporation's (NYSE: HRS) Healthcare Solutions business, recently addressed leaders of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), and provided a patient's perspective of healthcare policy. Traficant projected the impact Florida policy makers could have in transforming healthcare by enabling market forces, rewarding efficiency, and promoting a connected care-delivery network. The presentation was part of a Health Forum sponsored by Holly Benson, secretary of the Florida AHCA. Approximately 50 members of Secretary Benson's leadership team attended the forum.

During the presentation, Traficant also related his personal insight into the healthcare system as a two-time liver transplant survivor, as well as the fiscal and moral imperatives for accelerating the healthcare transformation in Florida and the U.S.

"The use of advanced information technology plays a critical role in ensuring immediate access to vital patient information, especially at the point of care," Traficant told attendees. "As leaders of Florida's healthcare community, you have a unique opportunity to accelerate the digital transformation of healthcare IT by delivering policies that will promote more efficient and secure medical information exchange that saves lives and reduces costs."

Prior to his presentation, Traficant met with Secretary Benson to discuss his unique perspective of challenges defining the current healthcare system and how policy and technology can shift the paradigm to patient-centric care. They also discussed the benefits of federal initiatives currently underway such as the new Nationwide Health Information Network-Connect (NHIN-C).

Harris announced in March that it was selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop and integrate the NHIN-C solution. NHIN-C is part of the larger NHIN initiative and will enable federal healthcare agencies and healthcare providers to more efficiently and securely exchange patient information -- improving the quality of care and reducing costs. Harris, along with its teammates Agilex, Inc. and ScenPro, Inc., are developing NHIN-C.
