Nice post Deanna.  You'll always get a few people concerned that you're not covering their area. But I think you covered a lot of ground here, and you weren't trying to imply that it was exclusive or comprehensive.

You failed to mention nanotechnology which is the primary mover behind many of the developments which you sight, but also so much more then the individual improvements which it has spawned..  An opinion; nanotechnology is more important as the driver of change in health care then microtechnology has been during the forty plus years since the dawn of the microprocessor age.  Nanotechnology will impact healthcare much faster and result in far more profound changes then all which has preceded it. Nanotechnology deserves to be at the center of any discussion of this type.

What about a health terms list? I see a lot of fellow technical people entering the health (public health and healthcare delivery) innovation space without a good understanding of how healthcare actually works.

Some key-words off the top of my head would be: workflow, medical informatics, meaningful use, HIPAA, HITECH, HITSP, ONC-CCHIT, clinical quality measures, HL7, and more.

Great list - I would hope that some usability terms creep in as well

@DeannaJour231 No. Decision making tools. They'll have to be created if QS/ Meaningful Use/Shared Decision Making are to become mainstream
