    "Healthcare has struggled to implement new software and digital technologies and there is great frustration that the digital revolution in healthcare has not followed the same trajectory as it has in other industries. This book helps the reader to understand what makes the healthcare environment fundamentally different with discussions on how to address many of these barriers. Understanding these differences and how to address them is the difference between a shining promise that fails and a solid solution that revolutionizes care. Should be required understanding for those that want to create new healthcare technologies, to implement new technologies, or to invest in new healthcare technologies."
