It’s National Health IT Week, and across the country healthcare stakeholders are recognizing and celebrating the impact of technology on this dynamic industry. To mark the occasion we decided to talk with some of the brightest women we know – here at Merge, at IBM and within our valued client base. We asked them what it’s like being a woman in HIT, how the field has changed over the years, and advice they’d offer to young women considering a career in STEM or HIT. They were insightful, witty, open and optimistic, and their observations and words of wisdom are well worth sharing.

Healthcare needs “Ludicrous Mode”
Today I read an article about the new Tesla Model X. Being a car guy means that I immediately want to know how fast it can go. As it turns out it’s REALLY fast. An average minivan can go from 0 to 60mph in about 10 seconds. The Tesla Model X ‘Performance‘ model can go the same distance in 3.8 seconds. For a little more money, one can purchase the ‘Ludicrous Mode’ option, which makes it go the same distance in just 3.2 seconds! If you aren’t into cars, think of those skydiving videos that make the person’s face flap around… that’s how fast this is. Today, I can’t seem to find a parallel to this type of technology and advancement in healthcare. I won’t go so far as to say we are in the horse and buggy era, but we are behind. We need to figure out how to get to ‘Ludicrous Mode‘ in healthcare.
