Michael Craige offered some data and posed several interesting questions in his post, "

Clinical is the Name of the Game - Hospitals' IT budgets" today. Generally, impoverished organizations do what they can to improve care, with whatever IT budget they can access.

I thought back to this diagram (above) and realized that poorly funded or unfunded hospital IT budgets can impact more than just '

Resources;' lack of funding often impacts


Incentives, and the other green boxes, with the predictable outcomes shown at the right.

Thanks, Michael, for getting me to think about these challenges in a different way.
