One comment on “Healthcare Technology and Individualized Health – Let the separate orbits unite

  • Why isn’t technology run like another clinical department? Doctors, nurses, techs, PA’s, orders, scheduling, documentation, block time for projects, billing based on documentation, etc? Orders are made by professionals that have undergone years of training to where they can make a decision without having 5 meetings with committees that have no expertise into the decision they are being asked to make? In my view, the clinical field is so much more efficient. Do your service desk numbers stack up to your ED triage numbers? Do your surgeons perform more ‘projects’ per day than your IT analysts? Are surgeries less complex or complicated than IT projects?
