DUBLIN, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “Electronic Health Information Exchange Market” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report examines the technology, technology providers, and market trends in Electronic Health Information Exchange (HIE) services.

This report evaluates the current industry trends in HIE products and services. It also identifies the key vendors and their strategies. The report also answers the basic questions: What is an Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR)?, What is an EHR database?, and Why is there a need for an HIE?

Simply stated, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. While many leading companies are increasingly moving towards digital retention of records via EHR databases, information is typically available only within a closed system. In other words, medical facilities that are not part of the same group often cannot exchange data between their EHR systems.

How Two Compliance Officers Tackled Risks Arising From the Coronavirus Pandemic

To tackle health-care needs during the coronavirus pandemic, companies have had to strike a balance between haste and prudence—an act that often requires the attention of compliance teams grappling with amplified risks and fewer resources.

“There’s a volume and a speed at which we’ve needed to respond to ensure that we [are] meeting the same standards and the same requirements that we would always, understanding the risk profile probably changes somewhat, knowing that you’re addressing a global health crisis,” Ashley Watson, Johnson & Johnson’s chief compliance officer, said Thursday at the WSJ Risk & Compliance Forum.

The New Brunswick, N.J., health-products company has been working with governments and other companies to try to find solutions to address the pandemic, such as developing a Covid-19 vaccine.

Customers wrote ‘mask’ on bill instead of tip after waitress asked for COVID-19 compliance

A server at a Pennsylvania restaurant on Sunday was treated to the word “mask,” in place of a tip written on a receipt after the worker asked customers to put a mask on to adhere to coronavirus restrictions. 

ABC’s Philadelphia affiliate, WPVI-TV, reported Thursday that Jamie Ledwith was “surprised” and “shocked” when she opened the bill at John Henry’s Pub in Ardmore, Pa. 

“When they came in they walked through the bar without their mask on. So I asked them politely, ‘If you’re walking through the bar, or standing, just put your mask on until you’re seated,’ ” Ledwith told the local news outlet. 

Kathy Kearney, who has owned the family-run pub for 15 years, posted the receipt to Facebook, prompting a wave of encouraging remarks and messages of support. 

“The reactions and comments started immediately flooding and I think there was one negative versus hundreds of positive comments,”

Princeton researchers report high level of compliance with on-campus health and safety protocols

A survey of Princeton researchers who returned this summer to on-campus laboratory-based activities found a high level of compliance with the University’s health and safety protocols.

The anonymous survey, conducted in late July, asked researchers to report how often they and their colleagues adhered to University guidelines on mask wearing, social distancing, laboratory density and other practices that help prevent transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Of the 818 people who took the survey, nearly all reported wearing a mask most or all of the time, maintaining 6 feet of distance between lab members, and following lab occupancy maximums.

“These results suggest that Princeton laboratory researchers are serious about safety,” said Dean for Research Pablo Debenedetti, chair of the Committee on Phased Resumption of On-Campus Research, which
