Using information to manage cultural change: Establishing the medical model for inpatient care

Stephen H. Dinwiddie, Nancy Staples, Diana J. Meyers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The information revolution is, at the least, well underway, if not effectively over. It is now possible to measure with ease virtually whatever we wish, and to apply highly sophisticated statistical methods to analyze the information gathered. All too often, however, the awesome number-crunching ability now accessible to almost anyone is not matched with comparable critical thinking about what to measure, when to measure it, and to what ends the data should be applied.
