    Security should be a driving force and not an afterthought for senior executives and their boards.

It starts with setting strategic security objectives that must be achieved by December 31, 2016, and December 31, 2017. Think near-term, and think far!

    As the old adage goes: Don’t take a good thing for granted.

    How often do we do this in our personal and professional lives?  Probably more than we’d like to admit.  So when that good thing comes along, recognize it, take pride in it and promote it.  That’s precisely what we’re doing with our interoperability capabilities as they grow and become more relevant for more of our healthcare customers.
