re: Informatics Pioneer Says Healthcare Needs Better Systems
I also agree with the article in the sense that a unified system is needed for health IT. Information right now is too spread out and not accessible by all providers. Technology has the capabilities to access information that physicians are incapable of knowing, but unless all physicians have access to that information then we will not achieve the goals we have set for healthcare IT. Not all patients are receiving the level of care that should be available for everyone and that is not right.

re: Informatics Pioneer Says Healthcare Needs Better Systems
Totally agree with the article. There is so much that computer science can give healthcare, and is not. I am a licensed clinician, a research statistician, and I.T. pro. Each of those disciplines tend to be their own island. Clinical diagnostic support, treatment coordination, nursing notes, community aftercare support, patient compliance history, tx response history, history of presenting symptoms, social networking support, gov't health programs that may be of assistance, coordination with out-of-network hospitals and treatment providers, etc... Nobody can keep up with all that without better informatics support. And I haven't even breached biopsychosocial assessments and intervention history or gene mapping and analysis.
