The Alternative Route: Hanging Out The Unmentionables For Better Decision Making In Health Information Technology -- Kibbe and M

The Alternative Route: Hanging Out The Unmentionables For Better Decision Making In Health Information Technology -- Kibbe and McLaughlin 27 (5): w396 -- Health Affairs: "Expert panels and policy analysts have often ignored potential contributions to health information technology (IT) from the Internet and Web-based applications. Perhaps they are among the 'unmentionables' of health IT. Ignoring those unmentionables and relying on established industry experts has left us with a standards process that is complex and burdened by diverse goals, easy for entrenched interests to dominate, and reluctant to deal with potentially disruptive technologies. We need a health IT planning process that is more dynamic in its technological forecasting and inclusive of IT experts from outside the industry."

A lot of what we do in delivering healthcare is going to be done online - and the sooner we realise this, the better !
