Actually, most of the docs I saw this summer were empathetic, but there were several snafus when information had to physically shared. Surveys have shown that empathetic docs who apologize when things go wrong get sued less. And I do believe there was geneuine compassion on the part of several docs.
I did find that as much of the information did automatically flow between docs in different facilities (5). One doc in particular was religious are sharing information and there about nine docs involved. She was the only one to use e-mail with me where they don't get compensated. Her place in the pantheon of my favorite physicians is secure. She even called me once to see how I was doing....an above and beyond physican.
In looking back, the flow of information went reasonably well despite a couple of horrendous mistakes, the sting of which has worn off....
"Outside-in" is another way to describe loosely-coupled web-based computing where technology more closely mirrors the business. Maybe computing isn't the right word, but information flow does not quite cut it, either. Author Eric Openshaw offers up a decent example to explain what he's talking about and four steps about how to get "Outside-In."

Many enterprises are looking to Managed Print Services (MPS) to help them better manage complex print environments. While MPS engagements help businesses optimize their infrastructure, manage their IT environment and improve overall workflow, the benefits of incorporating MPS into your enterprise extend beyond technology. MPS can help your organization reduce costs - both financial and environmental - lower the burden on IT staff and improve employee productivity.
Introducing and implementing an enterprise BYOD policy requires a thorough examination of several different factors, from allowed devices to supported user conveniences. Even with more mobile devices in the workplace, printed materials are still used across the enterprise, with an increasing number of these pages originating from mobile devices. According to IDC*, the “total U.S.
Take a look at about any office and there’s no question that that the number of mobile devices and cloud services used by employees have multiplied in recent years. The rapid expansion in the use of mobile devices is both a productivity boon and a complexity challenge --- especially when some products or services don’t work well with others.
