Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): Information Flows (Week of August 19, 2013)


I am seriously intrigued by this health record information flow diagram that has been making the rounds on Twitter recently.

This is from a 1997 book available free online via National Academy Press, the National Research Council, and the Institute of Medicine.

For the Record: Protecting Electronic Health Information (1997): http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=5595

The image is on page 73, but was virtually unreadable in the PDF I downloaded, making this tweet the most accessible and readable copy of the image available online.

I also found it interesting to see how MANY hashtags Wen (Wen Dombrowski MD) used in her tweet, and thought it might be interesting to you to see how you can start with one tweet, and explore a concept or idea through those hashtags used.

#PATIENTS

#HEALTH

#DATA

#INFOSEC (Information Security)

#HIPAA

#INTEROP (Interoperability)
