Health information technology: fallacies and sober realities

Karsh B et al, J Am Med Inform Assoc, 17(6)

Current research suggests that the rate of adoption of health information technology (HIT) is low, and that HIT may not have the touted beneficial effects on quality of care or costs. The twin issues of the failure of HIT adoption and of HIT efficacy stem primarily from a series of fallacies about HIT.

[Telemedicine: An unfruitful experience of tele-expertise in nephrology.]

Alamartine, Eric et al, Presse M├ędicale, 2010

Introduction
We developed a new system of medical tele-expertise to improve detection and care of chronic renal failure by way of a better communication between general practitioners and specialists. It has been known for long that the incidence of chronic renal failure is increasing while cost of its treatment is very high. Unfortunately, late referral of patients with kidney diseases remains around 30%. Our goal was to help physicians to get access to nephrologists, hence to improve the cure of renal diseases. An early treatment of nephropathies may avoid the evolution to the stage of dialysis.
