There has been a lot of attention paid to quality of care in hospitals and outpatient settings with the use P4P and HEIDIS performance measures, and this has led to a proliferation of IT in these care settings. Unfortunately, nursing homes have lagged in adoption of technology. What is needed at the nursing homes, is the implementation of technology in order to improve the quality of care. I believe the time has come.
