Using the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s Federal Health IT Strategic Plan as a guide, he spells out the potential winners and losers if the market moves in the direction the government hopes, with apps and devices, research, and Learning Health System potentially being the winners and EHR vendors and privacy and security being the potential losers.
