As 2015 is nearly upon us, it’s time for us to reflect on the past year and what has occurred throughout the year. For healthcare, it’s been quite a bit of a ride. Since I’ve been exclusively on an ICD-10 implementation since 2010, the major story of the year was the delay of the ICD-10 compliance date that was snuck into the SGR bill in March. I would argue to say that blindsided all of us no matter what side of the provider/payer/vendor fence you are on.
According to Govhealthit.com, here are some of their top health IT stories of 2014 outside of the ICD-10 compliance date delay:
1) Prescriptive instead of predictive analytics
2) ONC 10 year operability roadmap
3) Epic is more interoperable than conventional wisdom allows
4) Apple/IBM partnership
