In the first post of this 2 part blog we explored the big challenges with the demands that the ARRA HITECH and other compliance and regulatory impositions have impacted Healthcare IT: HIPAA’s Version 5010 conversion, ICD-10 migrations, Meaningful Use of EHRs and their Attestation and Accountable Care Organizations. We also briefly touched the popular topic of the imminent end of the world in 2012 according to the Mayan calendar prediction.
If you read carefully you would have noticed that my predictions, well, they have some small glitches now and then, or you may call them “bugs” due to my software developer background. So at the end of this blog we’ll have to revisit the end of the world prediction. Sorry folks.
