healthcare IT industry is a complex and challenging one. Today,
however, the industry is facing unprecedented demands with various
shadows of controversy. We will explore some basic underlying
observations of the industry and its current state. We will dissect
the marketplace and look at what is happening to affect the direction
the industry is taking and the impact that is having on the industry
as a whole. Have we lost sight of the healthcare information
technology (HCIT) vision? Does it need refreshing? Has it kept up with
the changing marketplace? We will present a few provocative ideas, some radical
thoughts and innovative thinking to challenge the current state.
