CAPP Chair Robert Pearl, MD, Discusses HIT in Hospitals & Health Networks (H&HN)

In this H&HN video interview, CAPP Chair Robert Pearl, MD, discusses a significant problem with new health care technology: HIT designers create the technology and then look at ways to apply it to healthcare. The better way to approach HIT development is to find the problem that needs to be solved and then figure out the technology that can help solve it, says Dr. Pearl, who is also executive director and CEO, The Permanente Medical Group; president and CEO, Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group; and co-CEO, the Permanente Federation, LLC.
