Government and private industry efficiencies:
The 2010 Census, the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), and Homeland Security are but three of the many examples where personal information is a major component. They are also examples of run-away costs, inefficiency, or down-right failure. Information Management can do better. It has to because it is spending scarce dollars where it should be saving them. We have to find out why and do so soon as the road we are taking is leading in the wrong direction.
Should we have to collect census data on paper?
Should we have to wait 10 years for an update?
