ABSTRACT
The author reflects over the use of information technology for alignment of hospital-physician relations towards better provisions of healthcare. He highlights the importance of electronic medical records as a foundation for healthcare services. He argues that if hospital and physician pay-for-performance programs can grow together and feed into one another rather than run on separate, parallel tracks, hospitals and physicians will have incentives to accomplish common goals.
