At the SDForum’s first ever Healthcare IT Symposium held on June 8, 2010, I learned a great deal about the many roles of IT in the healtcare system. It is clear that healthcare IT is going to be a strong, growing field in the years ahead. For a summary of the event, see http://cloudofinnovation.com/articles/healthcare-it-symposium-the-role-of-technology-innovation-in-healthcare/.
I did find my head spinning with all of the acronyms thrown around so I’ve put together this short guide for the uninitiated: http://cloudofinnovation.com/articles/healthcare-it-acronyms/.
