What’s wrong with health care IT

Matthew’s got an interesting article on What’s wrong with health care IT. I’m not sure I completely agree that just because there are 45 other options out there that the 46th one won’t be useful, but it’s true that we in health IT do sometimes like to reinvent the wheel. And, it’s not always bad — sometimes the reinvention process does create something useful. I don’t recommend building technology instead of buying for hospitals but given that there’s no such thing as a thoroughly succesful PHR we can hardly blame people for thinking they could do it better.
