Document Description
Currently, the field of health informatics stands to learn from the success and mistakes of the healthcare quality improvement initiative. This presentation calls for a coupling of these two fields of knowledge and argues that for any technological intervention in healthcare to be successful, there must first be a culture of quality and safety in place.
