There was a recent post at this site, if you will read the whole article you will understand the risks in using cloud computing for your medical data applications with AWS. Though some people are still using it, it is your discretion whether to use cloud computing over EHR Software System. EHR Software System has not yet received any negative feedbacks or complaints, it is still far one of the best softwares to use for your medical data. On the other hand, Wonderdoc recently received the ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification which is one of the reasons why they think Wonderdoc is also a great system to use. But really, it is up to you on what to use. Just be open-minded and don’t be afraid to contact both if you think there is any problem with their products.

HIPAA refers to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. It is the United States legislation that offers security provisions and data privacy for protecting medical information. It was President Bill Clinton who signed the act into law in August 1996 and contains the following five sections:

  • * HIPAA Title I safeguards health insurance coverage for persons who change or lose jobs. In this section, group health plans are not allowed to reject coverage to persons with particular diseases and pre-existing conditions as well as from setting limits to lifetime coverage.
  • * HIPAA Title II orders the United States Department of Health and Human Services to create national standards for processing electronic healthcare transactions. This section also obliges healthcare organizations to apply secure electronic access to health data and to stay in compliance with privacy regulations set by HHS.
  • * HIPAA Title III incorporates tax-related guidelines and conditions for medical care.
  • * HIPAA Title IV further defines health insurance reforms as well as conditions for persons with pre-existing conditions and individuals looking for continued coverage.
  • * HIPAA Title V incorporates conditions on company-owned life insurance and treatment of those who lose their United States citizenship for income tax purposes.
