In a "Views from the Top" address titled "Prescription for Health IT: What’s Holding Us Back," Tippett said: "The U.S. health care system is the envy of many countries around the world. However, there is much that needs to be done to bring the industry into the 21st century. Working together to tackle acknowledged industrywide challenges, we can foster an environment of change and through the pragmatic use of IT create a stronger and more viable health care system."
Tippett outlined four key areas that he said will serve as the foundation for the future transformation of the health care system. The areas are:
- Built-in Security
- Support for Structur ed and Unstructur ed Data
- High-IQ Networks
