InfoButton

02/01/2010
Here is a link to a interesting blog post on the use of the HL7 Standard, known as InfoButton.
http://www.thehealthcareblog.com/the_health_care_blog/2010/01/the-infobutton-standard-bringing-meaningful-use-to-the-patient.html

It seems that this standard does not get the visibility and support from vendors that it deserves.  If 80% of medication errors are due to knowledge deficient, then a link to information from an application is just what is needed.   The blog post talks about the standard utility in PHRs.  It has utility as a health practitioners context sensitive drug information tool as well.  Ask your vendor to implement it as part of all of their applications.  Anyone have experience in implementing and using this standard?
