Re: Does it feel like a Golden Age to you?
I've seen some truly innovative healthcare projects out there that make me optimistic about the state of HIT. The rapid adoption of EHRs is a leap in the right direction. ACOs are paving the way for a new healthcare model by improving outcomes and decreasing costs. At the same time, I have yet to speak with a physician who is satisfied with their EHR. The verdict on ACOs is still out. Regulations are eating up valuable resources that could be spent on innovation. The mining and analyzing of unstructured data is still in its infancy. I see strides the industry has made in the past decade, but I also see a long road ahead.
