re: American Docs Question Health IT's Benefits
Are physicians in the other countries studied more advanced? The reasons cited for the less than half rate for U.S. physicians is "slow adoption rates for key technologies, lack of information sharing between enterprises, inadequate IT staff or shortage of IT skills at health delivery organizations, and resistance from patients over privacy concerns also hold back the U.S. healthcare system's ability to advance the use of health IT." Are these not concerns in other countries.
