Affordable Care Act Showing Positive Impact

Despite the technical problems, the Affordable Care Act is already making a permanent, positive impact on the public and private sector workforce. The number of frontline and non-clinical health care jobs is expected to skyrocket, according to the College for America at Southern New Hampshire University. That includes the job of patient navigator that helps connect people to the new healthcare options. Medical office specialist and medical assistant are expected to be the third and fourth fastest growing job types through the year 20-20...and that's compared to all other jobs in all other industries tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report says the growth is due in part from the aging baby boomer generation...but also because of advances in health information technology. The number of jobs as a medical records technician is also expected to quickly rise.

DoD chooses interoperability over integration for new e-health record system

Frank Kendall says many different factors played into the Pentagon's decision to go with a competitive bidding process to develop its integrated electronic health record system, instead of adopting VA's VistA program. He said DoD wants to ensure its system is interoperable not just with VA hospitals but with civilian health facilities as well. In addition, Kendall cited cultural differences between the two large agencies.

Internal watchdog blasts DoD's health IT efforts

A memo obtained by Federal News Radio points to a split in thinking inside the Pentagon's efforts to achieve interoperability with VA's electronic health record system. An assessment by the Pentagon's office of operational test and evaluation, an internal acquisition watchdog, finds DoD's project to build a new electronic health record is "likely to be detrimental to the President's goals" for interoperable health IT.
