Key issues in federal health IT
Health IT: Transforming government health organization
The US federal government has significant health obligations to current and former military personnel, and complex health and human services commitments to the civilian public. It is both a gatekeeper and a catalyst in the development of new drugs and therapies. And, as the practice and business of medicine continue to evolve, government is at the center of global change. A common element in these challenges is health information technology. From interoperability in health care, to electronic health records (EHRs), technology is enabling government organizations to become more efficient, operate with greater insight and effectiveness, and deliver better service. As organizations reassess their strategies and business models, how can emerging information technologies offer new and powerful ways to move forward?
Health analytics: Combining the power of data and expertise
Health analytics is growing in importance, fueled by government health industry stakeholders’ thirst for information, the need to manage large and diverse data sets, siloed data, tighter budgets, and growing legislative scrutiny. Today, robust and meaningful analytics hold the potential power to allow stakeholders to make more informed decisions. How can government agencies shift their focus to fulfilling their mission, rather than manually churning numbers? How can leaders take advantage of this new federal health IT?
Smart Health: Improving quality of life with smart technology
Social media connects people globally, allowing them to interact, share health experiences, and potentially help combat disease. At the same time, health care continues to innovate through technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), regenerative medicine, robotics, autonomous drones, blockchain, radical interoperability, augmented and virtual reality, and other exponential technologies that could disrupt what we understand about health and wellness. As these health communities use new technologies, health and wellness can take place where people reside and live through virtual health. Using exponential technology to help make communities healthier could be the next step on the health care continuum. How do you get started? Where do you begin?
IT modernization: Transforming legacy systems
Modernization is the first step in adopting disruptive digital, cyber, and cloud technologies that are driving change across business sectors and government. IT modernization gives agencies the foundation they need to meet dynamic end-user requirements and stand up a modern enterprise. Are you ready to modernize your legacy systems and transform your IT experience?
Electronic health records: Can the pain shift to value for physicians?
Physicians and electronic health records (EHRs) have a complicated relationship. Here’s how physicians feel about interoperability, clinician workflow, and their overall engagement in the technology based on our 2018 survey.

Blockchain: Opportunities for health care
Blockchain technology has the potential to transform health care, placing the patient at the center of the health care ecosystem and increasing the security, privacy, and interoperability of health data. This technology could provide a new model for health information exchanges (HIE) by making electronic medical records more efficient, disintermediated, and secure. While it is not a panacea, this new, rapidly evolving field provides fertile ground for experimentation, investment, and proof-of-concept testing.

Digital reality across the journey of cognitive health care in 2027: Harnessing a data-driven approach in personalized health care
“Precision medicine” or care that is highly personalized for each person’s genome is likely to revolutionize health care of the future. And cognitive technologies will play a pivotal role, as handling the enormous amounts of data—one of the imperatives of cognitive health care—requires much more than just “artisanal” analytic capabilities.
