Opinion: IT is not the doctor's real enemy
The latest digital issue of InformationWeek Healthcare featured an article suggesting that some of my ideas regarding evidence-based medicine are a source of animosity between CIOs and their physician stakeholders--physicians whom the author believes consider information technology "the enemy" of good medicine. His article touches on several key issues that should be top of mind for every physician leader and CIO today. But is IT really the enemy of good medicine? At the heart of the article is a very old debate: Is medicine an art or a science? I've never understood why it can't be both.
