Also in this issue, SearchHealthIT News Director Don Fluckinger reports from the front lines of the eHealth Initiative's Third Annual National Forum on Data and Analytics in Healthcare. Fluckinger chronicles the difficulties facing accountable care organizations trying to implement analytics. We also take an in-depth look at health IT operations outsourced to the cloud.

Next, Joseph Kim, M.D., takes a gander at trends in healthcare gamification. Prompted, in part, by meaningful use stages 2 and 3, new mobile applications are taking personal health to an entirely new level. And consultant Reda Chouffani closes with a quick look at the mobile security issues healthcare providers face. Get strategy tips organizations can follow to adhere to compliance regulations and better protect their data and devices.
