Changing Views, Changing Direction
Delivering healthcare is one of the most complex human activities. In recent decades, major transitions have taken place in diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and treatments resulting in shorter length of stay in healthcare facilities. The current transition to more personalized care and to longer term managed care pathways means that healthcare IT systems are changing direction.
But this change may not happen smoothly. Conventional IT debates about healthcare infrastructure, database, application and user training are based on the priority of organizations. Typically only a few people are interested in the finer details and the value this adds to the healthcare delivery.
Technical design of healthcare IT is just one aspect. Considerable effort is put into complying with policy, finding funds and convincing senior “clinical champions” to lead and motivate colleagues to use these systems. In general, the process of introducing IT systems in healthcare is frustrating, often due to changing specifications and expectations during the extended delivery processes. And now the healthcare professionals and technology planners are pressured by the public, patients and their family and friends to introduce reforms.
