Abstract

Given the rising costs of health care, the current focus on improving patient safety, and the goals of reducing barriers to efficient healthcare access, there is a strong and rapid push towards the implementation of health information systems in a variety of health care contexts. This panel brings together individuals with experiences spanning human factors and system safety research, medical informatics, and clinical practice to provide a set of diverse but complementary viewpoints on what it will take to successfully, safely, and meaningfully design and implement health information systems.
