Resistance is futile

It would seem that JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association) is starting to take an interest in ehealth/health informatics topics. The current issue has several articles on use of computers in practice by physicians. I haven’t had a chance to read the articles yet, but are the titles about computers:

  • Role of Computerized Physician Order Entry Systems in Facilitating Medication Errors
  • Effects of Computerized Clinical Decision Support Systems on Practitioner Performance and Patient Outcomes: A Systematic Review
  • The Unintended Consequences of Publicly Reporting Quality Information
  • Computer Technology and Clinical Work: Still Waiting for Godot **(I love this title)

Seeing as how JAMA is starting to take notice of topics other than coronary heart disease is a good sign. Maybe there’s hope that I may be able to squeeze in an article there someday 🙂
