New isn’t al­ways bet­ter

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

Be­fore we throw the “baby out with the bath wa­ter,” maybe we should have a very good idea as to the devel­op­ment cost and the main­te­nance cost go­ing for­ward (“VA’s over­haul of VistA could cost bil­lions,” Health IT Strate­gist, May 11).

I be­lieve the cur­rent sys­tem is re­spon­si­ble for sig­nif­i­cant “sick care” de­liv­ery sav­ings, and it has the po­ten­tial to sup­port “well care” pro­grams. It would be im­por­tant to know if pre­vi­ous sav­ings would con­tinue or di­min­ish over time. Hav­ing some­thing new isn’t al­ways bet­ter. Sa­ba­tini Monat­esti
