S.M.A.C.W.L. stands for Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud, Workflow, and Language, the big six technologies diffusing throughout healthcare, upending traditional health IT vendors, and creating opportunities for others. The first four tech trends have already been "acronym-ized" as SMAC. I added Workflow and Language. SMAC is really a new platform for creating and delivering health information management services less expensively to a wider audience of clinicians and patients, and everyone else who supports that relationship. But I believe it is the workflow and language technologies, which SMAC will deliver to the point-of-care and point-of-health, that will make possible smarter, more efficient, and more flexible digital health.
