The push to leverage information technology to modernize an anachronistic health care system has become a national imperative, and a key element in health care reform efforts.

It's a huge undertaking with many moving parts. The Health and Human Services Department’s Office of the National Coordinator is leading the initiative to help the nation’s health care providers share clinical data electronically, thereby improving patient care. Not surprisingly, it is easy to lose sight of the technological underpinnings of such a fundamental shift in the way medical practices do business.

In a new special report, Government Executive looks at five major trends in health IT that are charting the path to reform. Use the link below to download the report:
