My Letter Published in Health Affairs

Last September, I posted a copy of a letter I had written to the journal Health Affairs, commenting on an article titled Can Electronic Medical Records Transform Health Care? Briefly, the letter said that the answer to that question was no – that only people could transform health care.

The letter was published in the January/February 2006 issue of the journal, which has just come out. It was accompanied by a response from the paper’s authors, who said that they agreed and that the purpose of the article was to provide “evidence [health care leaders] will need to persuade their peers that an investment in change is worth the effort.”

I think the exchange was useful and I am pleased to have been a part of it.
