    I am glad that someone is finally talking about using IT for healthcare. There already are apps on iPhone to monitor heart rate or give updates on health issues like snoring, yet there is so much more that we can do.

  2. I just went through implementation of an EHR in my medical clinic. I understand both sides of the story. It is a lot of work to adjust. But the long term benefits are worth it. More time for patients, improved communication, etc.
    I’m a fan of Health IT!

    Any technology that reduces red tape and administrative work for a doctor or human in general and thus frees more time for quality time for direct doctor to patient always is excellent. Technology however never should replace doctors or humans, but only should work more efficient and accurate. Final decisions always are to be made by humans never by machines.

    Since 1985 I use IT to support and ease my work, as a tool to do my job better and have more time for patients/customers. It is vital to never depend on IT but to learn to use IT as a tool to do a better job. If for any reason IT fails (power outage or disaster times) it is important that health care and medical care still fully functions even without IT, else you have become a slave of technology at the expense of your patients.
