Overview Edit

The report discusses the synergy between information technologies and new trends in the health care delivery system as health care is brought online. It identifies some of the opportunities to improve health care delivery through increased use of information technology, and discusses some of the conceptual, organizational, and technical barriers that have made its adoption so uneven.

The report identifies key technologies and shows how they are being used to communicate clinical information, simplify administration of health care delivery, assess the quality of health care, inform the decisionmaking of providers and administrators, and support delivery of health care at a distance.
