In 2009, the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act was passed to fund and support a paperless national health network through the adoption of electronic health records, extending HIPAA and establishing data breach disclosure regulations.

Grason-Stadler offers a user-friendly assessment tool and solutions that address the regulations as they impact Audiologists in their various employment settings.
