More of the same?
"At least for the near future, I expect to see: (1) in the scientific area, more advances in molecular diagnostics but still slow acceptance due to costs and lack of perceived value; (2) in the operations area, improved informatics, both hardware and software; and (3) in the management area, tighter budgets. I also think that although we can foresee the technical improvements, it is how these are put together and used that make the consequences harder to assess. In a nutshell, I think 2010 will look a lot like 2009, only later."
