Physician executives are rapidly entering a new era of potential data excess -- some would even call it data overload. Most of them are already becoming aware of such terms as "big data" and "data analytics," but are also not yet quite sure what these truly represent for health care or our local health systems. Although intimidating, one can view this as potential opportunity as well. The pace of change within digital work environments will only continue to progress at rapid rates; the doubling time is anywhere between 12 and 18 months by some estimates. The author is proud to acknowledge that ACPE has been successfully retooling its technical infrastructure in order to prepare for these evolving trends. The ACPE hardware core is truly contemporary, and their software platforms have been cloud-based for several months. Ultimately, the evolving capabilities that digital technologies provide will be leveraged to assist ACPE members and customers as best as possible.
