It was followed by this kind of a commentary: "Oh yes, right, an announcement and a white paper will power the languishing HIE market into action. Right, and President Obama will show up next week and do my laundry.Honestly, folks, I’m an analyst with health IT background, not a developer or CIO type — so I’m not qualified to say exactly what technologies will work. But I do know posturing when I see it, and that HIMSS press release is rife with quasi-visionary statements.
