27 beliefs about Healthcare

 

That’s the title of a Tom Peters hastily jotted list from the end of 2005 – I’ve extracted the IS/IT ones here;

  • Get info to Patients! (HIPAA
    mostly good.—"I wanna see my records!") (Detailed hospital-by-hospital,
    disease-by-disease, doc-by-doc success records a must—despite
    controversy.)
  • Upgrade IS-IT in the entire system, starting with acute-care institutions. (Current grade: D-.) (Winners include: Indiana Heart Hospital; Inova Fairfax Heart Institute.)
  • Healtheon WebMD-like (if it had worked) mega-, integrated-info network will-should emerge. (A healthcare Google+?)*
  • MOVE HEAVEN & EARTH TO IMPLEMENT ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS. NOW
