UHIMSS Summer Insight Session
UHIMSS Summer Insight Session: A National Perspective on Helping IT play a Meaningful Role in Healthcare Reform with noted speakers Scott Holbrook and Mac McMillan, was held on August 16th at the University of Utah Health Care.
Scott Holbrook gave us a perspective on the focus of the HIMSS Board, which include Stage 7 (where a CCD is the ultimate goal); leading efforts to encourage Government leadership towards a Patient data matching strategy; and addressing the FDA’s potential regulation of software as a Medical Device.

Michael (Mac) McMillan talked about Security and Privacy, and if you think that this subject is boring, then you have never heard Mac speak on the topic! Security and Privacy are integral to Healthcare: we are a highly mobile society, and our medical records need to be safely accessible from anywhere. He offered many common-sense prevention strategies and technologies.
