In 1998, the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) National Roundtable on Health Care Quality noted that the quality of health care in the United States has substantial problems and that the problems will be addressed only through profound changes to the current health care system (1). The recent IOM report (2), “Crossing the Quality Chasm,” contained an unsettling list of studies documenting the prevalence of poor-quality care in the United States. Another IOM report (3), “To Err Is Human,” focused specifically on the current state of patient safety and ways to improve it. All three of these reports recognized the potential for information technology to be an important agent for change.
