Real change is unfolding in a place where many people think real change is impossible. As a leader in public-sector health, you’re managing in an environment with new responsibilities, new questions, and critical choices, all bouncing off one another in ways no one can predict. Finding smart answers takes both courage and calculus. Are you ready for the future of health care? This is one of the biggest shifts in the public-private dynamic in a generation, and its effects are expected to carry far.
As Federal Health is changing, your role in it is changing as well. Now that many elements of ARRA, HITECH, and ACA are being enacted or becoming law, you are operating in a new normal in health care and health information technology (health IT). As you take stock of your health IT capabilities in the new environment, ask yourself: What’s the most effective way to put them to good use? If changes in health IT mean you have a new job, it’s probably in addition to your old one. Before you set out to do your new job, be sure you’ve determined exactly what it is. The decisions you make today influence the choices you’ll have tomorrow.
