As an enthusiastic early adopter, I have seen the transformative power of technology and the data it can harness for health improvement. Technology can enable thinly stretched pediatric practices to deliver higher quality care to more children for less money. But only if these tools provide data that is meaningful, timely, accessible, and actionable.
