Improve healthcare information technology at the frontlines of medicine

This petition had 50 supporters

Over the last decade, information technology has transformed and revolutionized every aspect of our lives. Healthcare is no different, and due to a combination of technological capabilities and federal incentives, healthcare organizations across the United States have implemented electronic medical records and order entry systems throughout hospitals and clinics. Unfortunately, the IT solutions that currently exist are largely suboptimal, and frontline clinicians are spending a disproportionate amount of their time in front of computer screens—to the detriment of their patients. This is a daily source of frustration and disappointment, and the great promise of technology in healthcare is yet to be realized.

We put forward a motion to develop better, seamless and more user-friendly IT solutions, fully reconciled and optimized with frontline clinical workflow—enabling doctors, nurses and all other healthcare professionals to get back to where we belong: with our patients.
