Paper Abstract

Thinking about the potential for technology to control and quantify health care costs led me to develop the automated patient record evolutionary process (APREP). The automated patient record (APR) came to mind as an area with great potential to control and reduce health care costs. The automated patient record is a keystone in the overall health care delivery process. Information technology vendors try to sell a computerized patient record as a 'product.' It is important to consider the automated patient record as a process. A process evolving as part of the overall evolution of the delivery of health care services. The APREP is designed to assist health care executives response to the overwhelming forces driving the health care market towards a capitated managed care environment.
