In addition to maintaining these systems, a Healthcare IT professional deals with multitude of standards for data protocols and terminologies.

It has been established that Healthcare can be streamlined and associated costs can be reduced drastically if a patient is able to have greater control in the current ecosystem. Several personally controlled health record systems have been proposed and implemented, including solutions from Google, Microsoft, and Dossia. Standards like CCR & CCD have been gaining ground. Recommendations and guidelines for preferable medical terminologies like SNOMED-CT or ICD-10 has been order of business at office of national coordination (ONC) of Health.

We will take specific examples from use cases encompassing explanation of benefits, labs, medications, imaging, H1N1 reporting and master patient indexes. The talk will weave all the above use cases in one simple application.
