TECHNOLOGY: El Camino vies to be Hospital of the future once more

The other article in the SF Chronicle was about El Camino hospital, a community hospital in Mountain View, CA right in the heart of Silicon Valley.  El Camino had one of the first computerized hospital information systems, made for them by local defense player Lockheed.  That ended up I think in TDS, which later became part of HBO (or am I getting my lines crossed). Anyway, as the Chron now reports having gone wireless, El Camino is vowing to go paperless. There’s nothing particularly new in the article, but it is a good introduction to healthcare IT, and for this type of article including information about spending levels on health care IT to end up in a general newspaper, that’s progress.
