re: Health IT Priorities Put Regulations Before Innovation
I agree that during these times of change and tight deadlines itGÇÖs easy for regulation to come before innovation. In my opinion, though, one should not come before the other. If we put equal amounts of attention on each, we can accelerate care quality while improving the administration of that care. What will make the most impact in the next 5-10 years in both these categories? Technologies that unlock the massive amounts of insight regarding a patientGÇÖs condition and give caregivers the real-time, relevant knowledge they need to make smarter decisions. Technologies that free practitioners of paperwork and administrative tasks so they have more time to spend on patient care. Ultimately, when we combine the goals of healthcare reform with healthcare innovation, we drive toward a patient-centered experience powered by caregivers with intelligent technology at their fingertips. -- Will Saunders, president, Government Healthcare Solutions, Xerox
