2015 Recap: Top 8 Biggest Stories from the Nextech Blog Blog Feature

With few days left in 2015, it's often this time where we like to reminise about all of the memories from the prior year.

On the Nextech Blog, we've posted a lot of stories in 2015 that cover a wide variety of topics. As we looked through the past year's stories, we've compiled the eight most popular posts on our blog from 2015.

One look at the list and you'll notice one predominant theme -- compliance. ICD-10 dominated the conversation on the Nextech Blog in 2015, and while it was a huge story throughout the year, there are certainly other exciting topics covered as well.binoculars.jpg
