Electronic Health Records 2.0

For the past 25 years, reforming the American healthcare system has been a national priority. As part of this effort, this Administration has incentivized the use and adoption of health information technology, primarily in two forms - promoting the meaningful use of electronic health records and creating health information exchanges to facilitate greater sharing of information. For patients, unlocking health information creates the promise of greater access, convenience, and mobility in receiving healthcare services. For providers and payers, reducing barriers to information flow is one key to improving healthcare quality and reducing costs. But this raises several critical questions: Will doctors and patients embrace electronic health records and the secure exchange of health information? How might mobile applications fundamentally transform how we conceive of the healthcare system in the future? How should healthcare professionals embrace next-generation technologies along with the need for privacy and security? What will this health information technology ecosystem look like in 10 years, and what do we need to do to plan for its success?
