Make technology 'simple, effective' to boost doc adoption

Making health technologies both simple and effective are among five recommendations presented in a recent blog post by healthcare consultant David Lee Scher, M.D., for getting doctors to adopt such tools. For instance, he points to electronic prescribing of medical apps as something simple that can have a big impact. "Electronic prescribing of medical apps is something which will revolutionize healthcare in many ways," Scher writes. "It will facilitate treatments away from hospitals and create home-based sub acute care as a healthcare delivery model." Blog post
