In a brief article late last week, trade magazine Healthcare IT reports that federal funding for healthcare IT initiatives appears to have stalled.
Can’t say as I am all that surprised. This is after all an election year, a time when many government activities get put into stasis to await the next administration. Combining this news with that of the recent HIMSS CIO Leadership survey, it looks like 2008 will be a lean year for many an HIT software vendor. Still a lot of system installs though so the consultants should fair better.
