.You can't buy Epic
. Most "certified" EHRs based on 20+ year old technology
. Massive upgrade opportunity to move client/server to the Cloud, Mobile, Social,
. Big data is the solution looking for the problem, from Retail to Healthcare: comparative effectiveness research
. ACOs differ from prior attempts at capitation is access is access to timely data
. ACOs injects competition in a market that was formally "cost plus"
. ACOs will drive EHR adoption

. Epic is written in Mumps, relies on a datawarehouse
