Political uncertainty...Just kidding..I think with all the changes that we have been seeing, we continue to wonder of all the full details of the rest of the stages in meaningful use. I personally think that Interoperability is somewhat taken care of. With some of the standards available and capabilities of the top certified vendors we are almost there. Mobility needs a bit more time to mature, since there are very limited products developed for iPads and other Android devices once can only hope that we will continue to see improvement in this arena. And as far as Security and Privacy, I usually put those together in the same container and see that they will continue to be the big concern for many and one of the most challenging one. Take for example WikiLeaks. Having strong procedures, safeguards and security protocol still managed to let data leak out and still without knowing the source. With the increasing HIE initiatives this adds more privacy concerns for everyone.
I have to say between ICD 10, HIPAA 5010, Meaningful Use, The proposed cuts i have plenty to keep my mind on in 2011! And I love it!!
