South Florida’s most influential people weigh in on current events. Read their thoughts on what they think will make headlines in 2017.
Daniel Cane, President and CEO, Modernizing Medicine
If I interpret my corner of the world as the health IT industry, the big story leading into 2017 is the 21st Century Cures Act. This legislation will have wide-ranging implications for companies throughout the industry. Although it primarily addresses medical research and changing the approval process for new medical devices and drugs, vendors in the health IT space are particularly interested in areas that address improving interoperability, funding telemedicine and electronic health information exchange, among others. Fortunately, Modernizing Medicine is well-positioned to address the topics and support our clients in 2017 and beyond.
