Abstract

This paper identifies four major data management problems related to healthcare information systems: providers have complex application portfolios, system heterogeneity, data integration issues, and numerous, complex financial contracts to manage. Two emerging trends to solve some of these data management problems are described: electronic medical records (EMR) and national data repositories. This paper offers insight on how to make sure these types of systems are successfully developed and deployed.
