Top Ten Trends in Healthcare, Lab Medicine, and Pathology Informatics

Posted Aug 21 2009 12:25pm

I am currently in Canberra, Australia, where I am participating in the HIC 2009. This is the annual healthcare informatics conference sponsored by HISA, which is the Health Informatics Society of Australia. Yesterday afternoon, I delivered a 40-minute lecture to the group entitled: Interpreting the Tea Leaves: Ten Trends in Healthcare, Lab Medicine, and Pathology Informatics. It's an expanded version of a previously posted lecture that I presented to the DxMA in Chicago on July 22, 2009.

After some introductory explanatory material in the talk, I tease out the ten macro trends that I believe are occurring now in the U.S. with particularly relevance for pathology and lab medicine. Most of them have significant implicatiions for pathology informatics. I consider this "top-ten" approach a work-in-progress such that some new trend may occur to me later, or be suggested by a reader, that will displace an item in the current list. Submit a comment if you have any ideas.
