Answer Wiki:
The majority of the items that I think will affect the IT area of many of the healthcare organizations are the ones which are going to be affective January 2012 regarding the incentives under the ACO. This would require many of them to use EHR systems that are certified as well as have an advanced ACO technology platform ( HIE, payment distribution system, outcome measures..).. There is also the new payment bundling effective no later than January 2013.
