Wired News: Dragging Doctors to the Info Age

Dragging Doctors to the Info Age

Wired has a great story on “dragging doctors into the info age”. This article takes a look at how medical errors can be reduced using electronic forms. U.S. hospitals are hardly as computerized as, say, the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Internal Revenue Service. Physicians can spend entire days without touching a keyboard, and nurses routinely track patients’ progress through a series of handwritten notes passed from person to person. A good read.
