Our Progress Update

The Art of Medicine and Technology blog has been up and running now for a little over 5 weeks. So far we’ve had hits from around the world! In addition to the US, we’ve had hits from India, Canada, Singapore, Japan, Germany, England, and The Netherlands. Thank you! We have some regular readers too, and we are very interested in your opinions. This is your chance to weigh in on what you like, as well as how we can improve the site. What topics would you like covered? Are we heading in the right direction?

This blog is about ethically leading the transference to a paperless, computer-supported medical information system. I understand that leadership, information and ethics in healthcare can encompass quite a few topics, so your input is welcomed. Admittedly, there will be a lot of discussion of current activities in the US, but my interests go beyond current US policy, which currently does not address any of these issues. Here, the focus is on getting physicians and hospitals to implement basic clinical information technology. I’m interested in how knowledge will be represented through technology, and how it will flow in a useful, ethical way. So far it seems others are interested too!

Please register, share your comments and suggestions, and we’ll do what we can to improve. Is there anyone you’d like to hear from in particular, or a specific topic? Let us know! In the meantime, thank you for coming back. There is a lot more to discuss related to The Art of Medicine and Technology. Thanks again for an exciting first 5 weeks, and I look forward to hearing from you!
