Organizational change isn't easy
In answer to your question about why some hospitals aren't making progress, @David Carr, I'd say the answer is organizational roadblocks, not technology. It's interesting, I think, that Lakeland (a Stage 7 institution) made a point of moving quickly in its EMR adoption, believing that this would contribute to the success of the deployment overall.

When progress stalls
Interesting that some hospitals seem not to be making progress, according to HIMSS measures. What do you suppose is holding them back?

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
