The Perfect System
Health care needs and deserves the perfect computer system. We should begin with that goal and build our national and collective system agenda and IT investment strategy with the creation of a perfect system as our clearly targeted end point.
What would a perfect system for health care look like? We need to be very clear from the beginning what our expectations for a perfect system are if we are going to invest billions of dollars in health care IT as part of the national economic recovery agenda. We should be very focused on building the essence of the right system. We don't want to lay that track twice.
