About this Forum
Today’s electronic medical record systems are some of the most complex and expensive IT products on the market. Yet, for all their functionality, these systems integrate poorly with other clinical applications and use technology and design elements that are decades old. Why is this the case and what opportunities exist for the next generation of health information technology to become more open, flexible, and web based?
In his 45-minute presentation Shahid Shah looks at current EMR design and technology, explores the issues and options for health information technology modernization, and outlines what opportunities exist to escape the legacy EMR trap.
