New HISPC Project Website

The Health Information Privacy and Security Collaborative (HISPC) now has its own website through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The HISPC project is being coordinated by RTI International in conjunction with the National Governor's Association Center for Best Practices.

West Virginia is one of 33 states participating in the grant project looking at the variations that exist in each state with respect to privacy and security practices and policies and the legal bases for such practices and policies. The new website allows you to get information and links on the other states participating in the grant project.

The goals of the project are to:
  • identify both best practices and challenges
  • develop consensus-based solutions for interoperable electronic health information exchange (HIE) that protect the privacy and security of health information
  • to develop detailed implementation plans to implement solutions
I've previously posted about the HISPC project here and here.
