Re: Interfaces
What will start to change is the integration of communication functions, particularly with multimodal mobile devices (smartphones, tablets), with automated online applications in the "clouds. Popularly known as "unified communications," this kind of convergence will close the gap between important patient data changes (e.g., via monitoring devices) and the need to dynamically involve people, both caregivers and patients, wherever they may be physically located.

UC technology is applicable to other types of service applications such as customer services, financial services, educationn, utilities, governmant, etc., so it won't be unique to health care, but to a variety of consumer service needs.

I've heard this lament often about the need to create better interfaces for health IT via closer vendor-provider ties. And I've heard it connected to John Halamka's first point -- that the industry has been so focused on mandates that it hasn't been free to innovate on useability.
