Fred Trotter’s Patient Centered Health Internet Makes Sense

If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, check out Fred Trotter’s Patient Centered Health Internet article. He elegantly explains the simplicity of the Direct model vs. the  the more complex (but ultimately still necessary) NHIN national model (read my article on NHIN at IBM if you’re not familiar with all these terms). There really isn’t a competition between the two models long-term because we’ll need both but the new Direct Project is coming along quickly enough that I recommend small offices and health systems really start to take a look at in 2011.
