People use Health Information Technology

Some people are pessimistic about the benefits of health care information technology.

Some people say health care IT might be dangerous.

Don't bet against it.

Some people estimate a $90 billion return on investment (ROI) in 10 years.

Don't bet on it.

I think the return will be positive, maybe not in dollars - but maybe in lives.

I just started investing in health care IT: $4,800 for new software and $5,000 for a new server and installation.

We've been at it for one month now.

We're not quite there yet.

Reinventing the physical therapy chart electronically means I have to undo years of 'training'.

The hardest part is time - time spent re-creating clinical templates, work flows and data collection.

I might be tempted to get depressed or pessimistic about the process.

I might not see a big, positive return on my dollars.

But, I'm going to keep trying.

Some people think computers will improve our future.
