Our nation’s rapid move from paper to a digital native posture for its medical records is being driven by significant regulatory and payment reforms -- from initiatives such as Meaningful Use and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This once-in-a-generation transformation is creating a healthcare data deluge that is both unstoppable and exponentially growing. Both the amounts and kinds of medical data we need to manage in modern IT environments is unlike anything we’ve seen before.
