International Impact of the ACA and Health Information Technology Expansion

 

As part of his trade visit to Ireland this week, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick visited a digital health summit in Dublin yesterday to explore possible collaborations between digital health hubs in Dublin and Massachusetts.

Sustained growth and projections for further expansion and use of electronic health records and health information infrastructure have stimulated economic growth in this quarter, extending to the eurozone.

Some states are looking to the Eurozone in countries such as Ireland to develop trade advantages for growth.  Boston has become known in the past decade for it’s interest in establishing a greater presence as a ‘startup’ region for young technology companies to rival Silicon Valley in California.

The effort includes HealthXL which is a three month boot camp in Dublin, to incubate 10 start-ups in the digital and technology space, but this year the focus will purely be on digital health ventures.

Patrick spoke about how everyone should have access to affordable and quality healthcare.
