re: U.K. E-Health Records Failure Makes U.S. Plan Shine
This is really a great article. The U.S. could learn a lot in this process and hope that is what the long-term result of the HITECH Act will be...a bottom up buy in. A one-size fits all solution seems unimaginable in any country, and very very complicated as mentioned. There are many areas that the U.S. looks toward the UK and EU and I'm specifically talking in regard to regulatory matters in either drug development of biosimilars or in regard to the NICE and their outcomes / comparative effectiveness systems, which are policy-based. But nonetheless, the point being sometimes it's best to learn from others mistakes.
