AMIA2014 Workflow Paper (Sunday): Missing Evidence for HIT Transformation in a Review of the Literature

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

3:30PM Sunday

“The complexity of healthcare creates barriers to transformation and inhibits a linear path towards change. This study examined the healthcare literature for evidence of technology transformation applying the theory of punctuated equilibrium (PE). Through an analysis of 477 articles from 2004 – 2012 we found no evidence to support technology transformation in health care. We hypothesize that the system creates barriers to authentic consumer engagement needed for change.”
