  1. Recently, I’ve noticed a trend in IT departments recently: The concept of a “Need to Know” mentality.

    Since we’re not engaged in espionage, there are no national security operatives in play, and from what I can tell, Hospitals don’t look to attack each other other than through marketing campaigns, I have to wonder why.

    Then, there’s this: 3 ways to screw up your business. If you find that you control information to create a power differential, encourage teams to silo to not “bother” other teams, and look to compartmentalize projects to avoid input from other deparments, then you may be setting yourself up to fail: (And in all likelyhood, you probably already have, but luckily, your project was so compartmentalized that no one actually had all the dots to put together to know)

    1. You think your team is on a “need to know” basis. – No healthy flow of information upward,downward, and across silos

    2. You think you told your team once, and it was important enough that they’ll get it. – Downtimes, change controls, and budget priority / governance changes anyone?

    3. You think just saying it to your team is the most important part. – “We’re going with Epic – see you in 2015”. Yeah, doesn’t cut it.

  2. The EDCO patent is interesting but will not help health care professionals in managing patients. BTW, how does it read bad handwriting?

  3. The AHA should be looking at the quality of the HIT infrastructure as the doctors and nurses are struggling to keep their patients safe since the EHRs demand so much attention.
