NPfIT and implications for the US?

Dr Richard Cook, a US doctor and researcher at the University of Chicago, has drawn my attention to his short analysis of the NHS National Programme for IT and the implications for the US government’s investment in clinical healthcare IT. 

He says that what is happening in the UK is giving US observers nightmares. So much for the NPfIT setting the standards worldwide, which was the message being conveyed across the globe in the early years of the programme.

Dr Cook’s research includes the study of human error, the role of technology in human expert performance, and patient safety.
