I turned a book into a health technology business

from By Carolyn Hartley


Single, with teenage daughters, I had to make a decision, says Carolyn P. Hartley, MLA, who writes frequently on patient-centered technologies. Receive 10 percent royalties on a $109 technical book or keep writing fiction and get paid 10 percent on an $8 book. My passion was in fiction and creative nonfiction, but I was facing proms, cars, college, and a mortgage. In 2002, the American Medical Association took a chance on me to develop a book on HIPAA privacy and security. The concept: interpret a complex law, then, help build a secure infrastructure for electronic heath information exchange so that patients/consumers could move from one physician to another without having to explain their life's surgical/medical/family history at each stop — an ATM for health care. more
