eHealth for Safety
I came across this website, eHealth for Safety , commissioned by European Commission Information Society. The site is a little light on content, but does feature an interesting paper, eHealth for patient safety: towards a European research roadmap. The paper summarizes many of the published findings already in the literature. Its a good and balanced overview document that promotes eHealth as an enabler of improved safety while acknowledging the safety risks associated with health IT. The site has got a good links section as well for those interested in IT and patient safety.
