Description

We are on the cusp of patients having unprecedented access to their electronic health information as a result of Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements, commitments by public and private sector leaders, and new HIPAA requirements. Data liberation for patients is fueling an ecosystem of patient, provider and company innovators.  Within sight this year is the killer app for patients–consumer- mediated HIE (of one). What progress, opportunities and challenges do we expect this year? How can you join the fun?
