RAND points fingers after health IT predictions fizzle

“Researchers at the RAND Corp. say their 2005 prediction that health information technology could save the U.S. more than $81 billion annually has not come to pass. But the organization isn’t placing the blame on itself for its inaccurate prognostication.
Instead, in a report in the January Health Affairs, researchers from the policy think tank placed the blame on “shortcomings in the design and implementation of health IT systems”.”
