England learns from America

The good folks at E-Health Insider in London today posted a story I did on National Health IT Coordinator Dr. David Brailer’s view on the National Programme for Health Information Technology, the massive project to automate records for the British National Health Service and its 52 million patients in England. (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are not part of this effort.)

“We’re learning how from them and they’re learning why from us,” Brailer said of the British effort.

My story notwithstanding, E-Health Insider is a worthwhile read for anyone in health IT.
