When historians and anthropologists look back centuries from now at the effect of the Information Age, they will point to its impact on communication, which led to the creation of virtual communities, development of entirely new markets overnight, and a whole host of other benefits. Perhaps the most important byproduct, however, will be how health information technology
(HIT) made a healthier human race. Drawing inspiration from ecology and economics, a business model can be developed that allows HIT to realize its potential to help accelerate new cures, develop best practices for patient treatment, and build communities around defined groups of patients. EMED is at the forefront for implementation of health information technology in the Caribbean.
