The Transformative Promise of Health Information Technology

Health Affairs Thematic Issue

March 2009

There is widespread agreement that greater investment in information technology is critical to reforming U.S. health care. The use of such technologies as electronic health record systems, personal health records, e-prescribing, and computerized physician order entry holds the potential for vastly improving care at reasonable cost. The March/April 2009 issue of the journal Health Affairs, partially supported by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), includes a series of articles exploring health care information technology: its transformative promise, the challenges to its adoption, and the dangers posed if that adoption is not done right.


These and other articles are available on the Health Affairs Web site free of charge through the External Links below.
