Study: Computers Don’t Save Hospitals Money

HT Marty Jablow for finding this article. You should link up and read the whole thing. However I have quoted what I believe is the most significant bit from the article.

The problem “is mainly that computer systems are built for the accountants and managers and not built to help doctors, nurses and patients,”

via Study: Computers Don’t Save Hospitals Money – BusinessWeek.

This hits so many of my hot buttons:

  • Using software just to do the books is fine but has limited value.
  • To be most effective dental software should have a clinical perspective and be designed to do the jobs the dentists, hygienists and assistansts need to do.
  • It is not the software (stuff) it is the solution that creates value.
