Overview of the state of Health Care and IT
As part of organizing the OSDL sponsored Health Care I had the privilege of meeting and talking to some very bright folks in the Health Care industry. One of those that summed up the status of IT in Health Care and the potential impacts of poor IT on human life was Dr. Kenneth Kizer, CEO of Medsphere. He previously was involved in the transformation of the Veteran's Administration health care system into the largest and one of the very best health care systems in the United States. His OSDL Health Care Day presentation is very insightful and well worth a read.
