MarkLogic's David Nace: Industry to Play Greater Role in 2016 EHR System Updates - top government contractors - best government contracting event

electronic health record EHRDavid Nace, chief medical officer at MarkLogic, has said he expects greater participation from industry stakeholders in efforts to introduce updates on electronic health records systems in 2016.

Such changes are likely to occur in the “usability” of EHR systems as doctors and medical organizations call for major upgrades of such platforms, Nace writes in a blog post published Tuesday on the company website.

He noted that sustainability issues associated with health information exchanges are likely to remain in 2016 because a sustainable business model is not yet in place.

“Healthcare has been running on decades-old database technology for years and I would not be surprised for a sea change like merger mania to be the tipping point for reevaluating antiquated approaches to managing data,” Nace added.
