Wall Street Journal Praises HHS Software’s Innovation

connect-link-webWho says the federal government can’t do anything right? Not The Wall Street Journal, which recently named Health and Human Services software CONNECT a winner in its annual technology innovation awards.

The CONNECT software, developed by HHS with additional assistance by 20 federal agencies, was selected in the Health IT field for its advancements in implementing and sharing electronic health records.

The open source software allows for cost-effective sharing of online medical records while also meeting stringent federal guidelines for maintaining security, WSJ concludes.

There were nearly 600 applicants across 30 countries vying for WSJ’s stamp of approval. After an initial decision made Journal editors, a panel of companies, think tanks and firms selected 49 for awards in 17 categories.

Last month, CONNECT software was selected as one of the top 10 government IT projects by Government Computer News.
