New Concept

I think you assessment that 95% of medicine is unrelated to events or
procedures is simply not correct.

Virtually all of medical care is event related. The event may be an
appointment that should have been scheduled or follow up delivered,
information that should be collected at a given point in time which may
drive a specific decision, or follow up needed for a specific test.

For long term, chronic care, it is all about closing loops and unless you
have a way of tracking events across the populations for whom you have
assumed responsibilities for care, your will drop the ball.

I believe that Dr. Smith's perspective is spot on. Our tools need to work
as tracking tools that which track events common to many patients. The
challenge is how to integrate tools like he has developed into different
EHR's, which do not seem to value deployment of such tools. This is a major
problem.
