1960s- The main healthcare drivers in this era were Medicare and Medicaid. The IT drivers were expensive mainframes and storage. The principal applications emerging in this environment were shared hospital accounting systems.

1970s- One of the main healthcare drivers in this era was the need to do a better job communicating between departments and the need for discrete departmental systems (e.g., clinical lab, pharmacy). Computers were small enough to be installed in a single department without environmental controls.

1980s- Healthcare drivers were heavily tied to DRGs (Diagnosis-Related Groups) and reimbursement. Personal computers, widespread, non-traditional software applications, and networking solutions entered the market. As a result, hospitals began integrating applications so financial and clinical systems could communicate to each other.

1990s- In this decade, competition and consolidation drove healthcare, along with the need to integrate hospitals, providers, and managed care. From an IT perspective, hospitals now had access to broad, distributed computing systems and robust networks. Therefore, integrated delivery network (IDN) were created – like integration, including the impetus to integrate data and reporting.

2000s- The main healthcare drivers were increased integration and the beginnings of outcomes-based reimbursement. Enough technology and bedside clinical applications had installed to make a serious run at commercial, real-time clinical decision support.
