Truestone Article on Securing Electronic Records Featured in Information Week Analytics

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) - Truestone, LLC, a provider of enterprise IT and mission operations solutions to the Federal government, announced today that its article on the cost and requirements of securing electronic medical records (EMR) has been featured in the March 2010 issue of Information Week Analytics.

The article, written by John Sankovich, Truestone's VP of Federal Civilian Services, focuses on how, where and why an EMR system will impact day-to-day healthcare security operations, and what must be done to assure compliance. The article does this by examining how EMRs are created and used throughout their typical 5-part lifecycle -- create, use, store, retrieve and retire.

Citing the Federal government's $17 billion program to reimburse doctors and hospitals for implementing EMR systems, the article includes the reimbursement schedule from 2011 through 2016. Accompanying the article is a breakdown of the estimated cost of implementing an EMR system for a Three-Provider practice.

Mr. Sankovich will begin writing a blog this summer devoted to healthcare IT issues in the Federal government. The Information Week Analytics article is available for purchase at www.analytics.informationweek.com. John Sankovich can be reached at john.sankovich@truestonefed.com.
