     rising overhead costs                  productivity issues

Regulation/compliance:                         Purchaser pressures:
 HIPAA, JCAHO, CMS            Providers        Pay for performance,
changing rules and laws      (and their IT        patient safety

          Technology:                   Consumer demands:

  Electronic Health Record

Electronic Health Records are needed that
maximize the amount of information
available to healthcare providers
  While not creating new work flow or cost
