Defining the priorities and challenges for the adoption of Information Technology in HealthCare: opinions from an expert panel.

Abstract

The Harvard Interfaculty Initiative developed a tool to assess the level of Information Technology adoption at healthcare organizations and asked an expert panel to rate the clinical functions where IT-based solutions can impact quality of care. The experts were asked to identify high priority areas where IT might impact quality, and to rate the difficulty in implementation associated with that solution. While scores from the expert panel varied widely in assessing difficulties in implementation of IT, there was broad consensus on high priority areas.
