Overview of Health Information Technology and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Abstract: 

The need for continuous improvement in the health care process has led to the need for obtaining knowledge in the area of Healthcare management including health policy and regulations. This includes an overview of the history Health Information Technology (HIT), which is relevant to and of continued interest to the health care community. One of the major issues facing many Americans is the rising cost of health care; coupled with the inability to obtain adequate coverage. The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was the most prevalent health care policy change in recent history. The PPACA was enacted to allow all Americans the ability to have standardized health care coverages, regardless of past medical problems. To better understand the PPACA, a discussion is presented on policy development, supporters, and critics of the federal statue. Moving forward it is important to appreciate the opportunities that are obtainable through HIT and the PPACA.
