Achieving Efficiency Improvements in the Health sector through ICTs – OECD final report :
This report presents an analysis of OECD countries’ efforts to implement information and communication technologies (ICTs) in health care systems. It provides advice on the range of policy options, conditions and practices that policy makers can adapt to their own national circumstances to accelerate adoption and effective use of these technologies.
