RAND

This entry is part 21 of 43 in the series Words

RAND Corporation logoIn the January 2013 HealthAffairs, Arthur L. Kellermann and Spencer S. Jones of the RAND Corporation look back  at the projections of a 2005 RAND study of healthcare IT. Why, in defiance of that study’s projections, are our medical computer systems not saving us $81 billion a year? They list reasons: slow adoption, lack of interoperability, and – you guessed it – poor usability. So, just maybe, if you get vendor CEOs and hospital CIOs to spend a few hours browsing the essays on this website, you can save the country billions of dollars. (Not to mention saving hospitals’ money and making more money for vendors.) Who’d have figured?
