The Winter 2004 PoPCRN newsletter highlights the use of technology in hospice, as well as a potential new research initiative to be undertaken in PoPCRN. The PoPCRN team thought that it would be interesting to survey PoPCRN members to see what types of technology are currently in use.
For the purposes of this survey, we defined “technology” as the use of information and communications technology in healthcare, including, but not limited to, electronic health records, personal health records, e-mail communication, clinical alerts and reminders, computerized provider order entry, computerized decision support systems, and hand-held computers. We did NOT include cell phones, pagers, fax machines, or dictation, since these have now become so common.
