Information technology looks to the "holy grail" of healthcare - electronic patient records

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Information technology has not developed as quickly in the healthcare industry as it has in other industries such as retail and finance. If it had, doctors would be able to carry up-to-date patient information in a palm-top computer enabling instant access to physiological data, such as continuous ECG, laboratory data, X-ray images and doctor's notes. They could combine this with the latest information on drug and device research gleaned from the variety of medical journals on the Internet.
