Exchange of health information is an essential function to the provision of high-quality and cost-effective healthcare. The information should be complete and timely for its intended purpose. Release of information (ROI) in healthcare is critical to the quality of the continuity of care provided to the patient.
In today’s world, the healthcare industry possess frequent data breach challenges from external threats thereby questioning the safety of secured patient health record access. However, the ROI workflow is often complex, involving many steps (sometimes 20, 30 or more), and every request has to be processed accordingly adhering to HIPAA regulations.

ROI: In-house vs Outsourcing
Most of the healthcare organizations/facilities operate their ROI process either in-house or outsourced to third party vendors for cost-cutting and reduced workload benefits. By outsourcing, the access to data may be compromised as they are processed via remote/online by the requesting parties.
Previously, the ROI process was manual and required printing out of massive amounts of paper making the workflow inefficient and costly. Many have moved to outsourcing of their ROI, this has led to increased external data security threats, sometimes resulting in privacy breach of patient’s medical records. In addition, there can be a significant loss of revenue opportunity.
