Team 9: Healthcare Applications of Data Farming
MetadataShow full item record
Healthcare in the United States is expensive and inefficient. As a whole, it is at least ten years behind other industries in the application of information technology to processes and practices. Hospital administrators, with a cadre of consultants and vendors in tow, are rushing to catch up, spending billions on IT. Unfortunately, process knowledge is often lacking, and technology interventions fail to achieve their goals. This contributes to the low rate of adoption—less than 10 percent—of tools such as electronic medical records.
