“What health information technology (HIT) issues keep you up at night?” This is a question HIMSS Analytics researchers often pose to senior HIT executives in research projects. The simplicity of the question resonates with the executives as there is typically a multiplicity of concerns jockeying for the executive’s attention: Meaningful Use, ICD-10 implementation and migration to a paperless environment to name a few. As the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Meaningful Use (American Reinvestment and Recovery Act 2009)1 and other regulatory initiatives are influencing the healthcare industry, it is understandable that these are critical initiatives for HIT executives to manage. 

But like all “nightmares”, it is usually things you don’t expect which can be the most paralyzing when they appear. So what issues are on the horizon now that executives should be considering? It is our opinion that managing the exponential proliferation of data (e.g. storage, data back-ups and archiving) is the next “monster” hiding underneath the IT leader’s bed.
