Changing consumer expectations and emerging technologies continue to introduce new complications into the healthcare IT environment. Legacy approaches to integration are not meeting current needs, says HIMSS Media. Dig deeper into the Top 5 challenges that include:

  • Keeping pace with changing technology needs and growing data volume
  • Relying on an EHR vendor to offer full integration support
  • Ensuring data security/mitigating privacy risks
  • Managing multiple application interfaces or communication standards
