  • Harvard's health record bank bolsters data sharing for research
    Harvard's new MyDataCan health record bank will enable the secure sharing of individual electronic records as well as collection of population data for research on public health, writes Dr. William Yasnoff, president of the Health Record Banking Alliance. The Data Privacy Lab will introduce the free record bank soon. Yasnoff likens its business model to a smartphone's app store: The Data Privacy Lab expects many applications to be available, some free and some for a modest fee, and a small percentage of payments will go toward maintaining the project.

Health groups using the 5010 standards are starting to see benefits such as consistency in claims processing, and complying with the HIPAA mandate could prove most beneficial for the impending ICD-10 switch, she notes.
