Interesting perspective on hospital performance and issues like patient safety based on providing better IT support.  We know human performance in environments like these is not always reliable so IT systems would appear to be a useful way of better supporting staff.

The big "if" is whether these kinds of systems can be adequately designed to meet the needs of the front line staff.  Will they be sufficiently usable in the field?
