If patient care was like flying a plane…

If patient care was like flying a plane…


If patient care was like flying a plane, a plane was an EHR and a doctor was its pilot…

…the doctor would be alerted before patients fell sick

…the EHR would be reliable enough to be trusted to treat a patient under guidance

…there would be control towers that actually understood what other EHRs were saying

…the doctor and her assistant wouldn’t differentiate between treating one or a few hundred patients at a time

…patient care would be dynamic, not episodic and stuttered

…care wouldn’t be tied to one region or one country, it would be global

…medicine would be as precise a data science as flying


Several operating models exist in other high-risk industries…waiting to be borrowed.
