American Hospitals spend a lot of money for computing, but physicians and nurses are dissatisfied with the computing that they receive. No one is at fault. Rather, each person, acting in his or her best interest, unwittingly conspires to produce the unfavorable result. Until hospitals make major and fundamental changes in the way they purchase and manage computing, they will continue to spend large sums without commensurate return.
