Vijay Kumar’s interesting post examines tactical vs. strategic implementation options for HIPAA 5010 compliance. Vijay says, “In the case of HIPAA 5010, developing just the ability to send and receive 5010 transactions will achieve basic compliance and is arguably the cheapest option. I wouldn’t be too hasty to call the organizations that plan for basic compliance as short-sighted, but at the same time I’d recommend that organizations at the very least perform an assessment before heading that path.” Visit the Infosys Healthcare blog for the pros and cons of both options.

Others look at a technology with preconceived notions of how it should work and are quick to drop a technology when it doesn’t fit their vision of ‘good.’” Check out CodeBetter.com for Jeremy’s detailed and interesting thoughts on the matter.
