We must create demand. “We must create electronic systems so appealing that they make physicians want to leave their paper medical records behind. We must create clinical decision-support systems that make it routine for physicians to check their internal knowledge with data and evidence. We must offer work-fl ow solu- tions that improve the effi ciency of using health IT. We must make physicians want, yes, demand the enormous power that IT brings to ... medicine. “We have to change a paper-based system in which most clinical decisions are made primarily by intuitive judgment – based on the ability to recall disparate facts – into an electronic system enabling decisions to be made according to data and evidence. “We must provide clinical decision-support tools that reduce the burden of recalling facts and help to assess patients, form diagnoses and choose therapeu- tic paths. Healthcare IT opens the door to this higher level of medical practice, one where both physicians and nurses can concentrate on examining, interacting and motivating patients, while technology handles the burdens of collecting, storing and accessing data. The knowledge of best practices and evidence-based care must be delivered to every single clinician at every point of care so that every patient everywhere receives care according to this latest knowledge, rather than according to the habits of a clinician disconnected from this knowledge.

“It’s up to healthcare IT to make knowledge more readily available and its discovery and use more intuitive. This work will require the design of clinical decision-support systems and other tools that merge seamlessly with patient-care activities. This work will not just distribute best practices, but embed them into the work fl ow of medical practice. This work requires a unique multidisciplinary effort involving not only work-fl ow experts but also virtu- ally any person connected with clinical care. “Bringing this level of sophistication and beyond to American healthcare will signify true transfor- mation and will require all of the diverse talents represented within HIMSS. No matter who you are – whether you are a senior IT executive, a clinician or an engineer; whether you come from a hospital, a community or public health organization, a clinical practice, a payer or a pharmaceutical company; or whether your primary interest is patient safety, qual- ity, research, privacy, or return on investment – we need you to contribute to the cause of transforming healthcare through IT.”
