This article is the last in a six-part series examining what industry pioneers have accomplished with electronic health records. In this installment, Editorial Director Gary Baldwin reconnected with sources from the series and with other experts to raise one final question: What does the future hold for clinical I.T.? Much of the discussion centered on the impact of the federal government's $49 billion program of incentives, grants and supporting projects aimed at promoting EHRs. While all were optimistic, each raised serious concerns that, if left unaddressed, could derail the nation's march to the EHR.
