“There has been some buzz lately about how interoperability is a non-issue. I beg to differ.
With increasing pressure from federal initiatives like Meaningful Use Stage 2, there is growing need for information exchange across the industry. As many federal incentive programs will soon come to the end of their reporting period, providers are likely to rely on technology vendors to comply with data exchange and reporting requirements. The need for interoperable systems will grow exponentially.”
