Exclusive Q&A: The Pair Behind #EHRbacklash And The Cure Project

Tom Sullivan | Nextgov | March 18, 2013

If you don’t typically consider EHRs and health IT in general as metaphysical or the stuff of Buddhist sayings, well, perhaps you’ve not asked Bob Brown and Steven Waldren, MD.

Brown, vice president at consultancy Mosaica Partners and Waldren, senior strategist for the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Center for Health IT, joined together to form New Health Networks LLC and kicked-off the Cure Project. 

Government Health IT Editor Tom Sullivan spoke with Brown and Waldren about what they are hoping to accomplish with the Cure Project, the current void of definitions for provider settings and technological requirements of each, and why describing those could ignite a radical change to health IT systems architecture while benefitting providers and vendors alike.
