Looming federal patient privacy regulations and approaching Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 compliance deadlines are the biggest concerns of healthcare providers, according to preliminary results of a survey released at the February annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). Some 61% of this year's respondents rated the need to upgrade security on IT systems to meet HIPPAA requirements as their highest IT priority in the coming year, up from 55% last year. Some 54% believe HIPAA will be the top priority next year as well, up from 51% in 2000. Losing ground was the deployment of Internet technology-last year's number one IT concern-which was cited by 46% of this year's participants, compared with 63% in 2000. Complete and final results of the survey will be available on the HIMSS Web site (www.himss.org) in early March.
