ttaining optimal health."

Dr. Shortliffe refers to a Roundtable on Health Disparities held earlier this year by Kaiser Permanente, AMIA, and the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to focus on public and private policies and practice strategies that could mitigate potential disparities in the use of HIT. Also central to the meeting were the roles of health plans and health systems in addressing the issues, and relevant research priorities. More information about that event is available online at http://www.amia.org/disparities-roundtable

"Because technology can cause unintended disparities," adds Dr. Shortliffe, "it is critical that health policy leaders, public health agencies, provider organizations, and practitioners all work to assure that equitable and effective implementation of clinical systems and health information resources serves a broad community, regardless of education and economic background, both domestically and in the global health arena."
