eHealth Initiative urges feds to reconsider HIE regs
July 6, 2012 in Medical Technology
I don’t expect more regulation will further stifle innovation.
Already, there is in place a major hurdle in that each time a vendor upgrades its healthcare software product suite, each product that is receiving an upgrade has to be re-certified at a cost of around $50,000. (internal pre-certification cost, fees payable to certification agencies).
Surely this is a powerful dis-incentive.
Healthcare software customers are not likely to see ANY upgrades other than at transition times from one MU stage to the next.
