Standards
The lack of standards is the same issue hampering the progress of EHR. And there, too, are the privacy issues. Is there anyone else still around who remembers the days of the Cold War when the military often ended up issuing standards by fiat? But, given time, standards will emerge, as the always do. Questions of privacy, of course, are a thornier matter.

Understood. I'm still coaching clients on the value of social media. The reality of technology is way behind what the media reports.
