Overview

As health information technology becomes more and more pervasive at the point of care; historic “IT” models being lead by designers/implementers of systems, clinicians are blurred being end users. In the most successful models, clinicians are shifting from being passengers on the journey to being drivers of healthcare information technology to drive value back to their organizations and patient communities they serve.
