As 2014 Nears an End, What Do You Think the Top 10 Health IT Stories Were?

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
