I have just posted the content from the session titled Effective EMR: Moving Beyond the Technology, along with discussion questions in the GHDonline.org Health IT Community. You can access the discussion here: What non-technological factors make EMR effective?. If you are not already a member of GHDonline.org, I encourage you to join! It is a fantastic resource for engaging others with similar interests across the globe.

Moving Beyond the Technology
When: Saturday, May 1, 2010
Time: 8am – 7pm
Where: Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), 79 John F. Kennedy Street
Cost: $50 Standard Registration ($20 Full-Time Student)
Information and communications technologies (ICTs) have the potential to transform health delivery throughout the world, whether through the use of electronic health records to manage HIV/AIDS care in rural Uganda or mobile devices providing community health workers with decision support in the field. Too often, however, this potential is not realized because undue emphasis is placed on the health technology in isolation, not in context.
Global PHAT 2010: Moving Beyond the Technology puts the health technology in context, focusing on human-centered, practical implementation strategies in developing country settings. This one day event brings together health technology implementers to examine the critical factors that make cutting edge technologies successful, including capacity building, partnership development, monitoring and evaluation, workflow and information flow optimization, and cultural contexts.
