The GSU chapter of the ACM presents
Transforming Healthcare in America:
The Role of Information Technology
and the Challenges that Lie Ahead
Dr. Mark Keil
John B. Zellars Professor of Computer Information Systems
Robinson College of Business
Georgia State University
This presentation will cover three pressing issues affecting healthcare in the United States: cost, access, and quality. To give some sense of the magnitude of these problems: U.S. healthcare costs are now at 17.6% of GDP. More than 48 million people in the U.S. are uninsured. An estimated 44,000-98,000 people die each year in U.S.
hospitals from preventable medical errors. Fortunately, information technology (IT) can play a significant role in addressing each of these problem areas. This presentation will provide examples to illustrate how IT can make a difference.
