Health Information Technology and Care Coordination: The Next Big Opportunity for Informatics?

David Bates, IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics 2015

David Bates is one of the leading experts in health informatics.  His article is relevant to our work on Loop and supports our vision statement - Patients experience a seamless system of caring. Here is an excerpt from the attached article:

“If organizations want to succeed in improving quality and reducing costs, providing better care coordination is one of the most important keys. However, the electronic health records of today do not yet truly enable care coordination. Even the leading U.S. organizations in care coordination do not yet have robust electronic tools for doing this—making this a key frontier for clinical informatics.”
