Physician, wire thyself – The Practical Futurist – MSNBC.com


This article goes well with previous thoughts I have shared about the poor state of our health care system.  This article is more specifically addressing the technical state of doctor’s offices: Physician, wire thyself – The Practical Futurist – MSNBC.com.  I find it interesting too that our supermarkets are more high tech than our doctors are.  And yet I pay much more for health care than I do for my groceries.  I suppose someone could argue that medicine often pays a lot of money for high tech equipment to help people and has thus made a reasonable tradeoff by not paying as much to keep track of billing and patient charts.  However, being a technophile, I would argue that it is a bit scary that many medical offices are not even as high tech as most businesses I deal with on a daily basis.  Obviously there are challenges in going high tech when dealing with very private information, but nothing more than the government or the banking industry has dealt with.
