The American healthcare system is in the process of significant change. Healthcare represents the fastest growing segment of our GDP, accounting for 17.3% of expenditures in 2009 and 19.3% projected for 20191, with Medicare and Medicaid representing 35% of that segment. Most metrics and outcome measures indicate that our healthcare system is operating inefficiently and that we are not getting our fair share from our investment. There is a broad consensus that these trends are unsustainable and that a change is mandated. It is generally agreed that health information technology (HIT) must play a significant role in effecting this change.
Health information technologies have been slow to trickle down to physician offices in the United States, and the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) in the U.S. lags significantly when compared to other nations. In the last several years, we have witnessed a major change. Ongoing government initiatives have actively endorsed the use of HIT across the continuum of care.
