LMI to Test Electronic Health Records Security Options

The Department of Health and Human Services has hired a consulting firm to investigate ways to make it easier to improve the security of electronic health records.

The HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology awarded a $1.12 million contract to McLean, Va.-based LMI for a 13-month pilot project that's aimed at "reducing the burden of security on end-users of health IT so that it doesn't stand in the way of EHR adoption," said LMI spokesman Matt Daigle.
