"E-HEALTH RECORDS" - NEW SHOW

| No Comments

Welcome back . . . to my internet show, "Talking Technology with Leroy Jones, Jr."

 

My new show deals with the subject of E-Health Records.


The slow pace of our nation's health care system to embrace modern technology continues to be an ongoing problem.

 

Last month the New England Journal of Medicine published the results from a survey concerning the, "Use of Electronic Health Records in U.S. Hospitals".


Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with the one of the lead authors of the survey, Dr. Ashish K. Jha of the Harvard School of Public Health.

"Dr. J" was both insightful and informative, and I hope to have him back with us again soon. 


Enjoy!

What is Behavioral Health (Healthcare)?

Definition:  An umbrella term that includes mental health, psychiatric, marriage and family counseling, addictions treatment and substance abuse. Services are provided by a myriad of providers, including social workers, counselors, psychiatrist, psychologists, neurologists and even family practice physicians.

Many states have "parity" laws that attempt to require that behavioral health insurance coverage be provided "on par" to physical health coverage.
