Dear Mr. Turitz,
I have an idea that I’d like to get some feedback and guidance from a healthcare IT expert like you.
As consumer, when we’re trying to buy a new product and not sure which brand/product to buy, we go on the internet and look for customer reviews or consumer ratings. But when a physician has a patient with a condition he’s not familiar with, or is considering prescribing a product or procedure in which he doesn’t have a lot of experience, what do they do? He doesn’t have time to look online for publications on the performance of that product/procedure (they may not even be available) or old textbooks. I have an idea for a software product that will help improve physicians’ decision making in such situations and therefore avoid costly medical errors.
Could you let me know if you’d be interested in exploring this idea with me?
Thank you in advance.
