This is an article by Jack Simpson @ Econsultancy about the progress in the digital world the heathcare industry is making. As many others would agree, including all those mentioned in this article, the heatlhcare sector is way behind. We have ambition and desire, but our efforts are still very weak. Especially in the NHS, there is a lot of talk, but our efforts are not coordinated, lack enough skilled professionals (from a variety of backgrounds, not just clinical or computer science), and certainly lacks enough funding.
But it is very encouraging to know that so many others are excited about the digital future of healthcare. I’m yet again inspired and have received affirmation that a leap in to IT was certainly the right choice for me.
