Health Information Technology: Blessings, Disasters, and Recommendations: An Interview with Scot M. Silverstein, MD

I was recently interviewed by Dr. Elizabeth Saenger for The Center for Rehabilitation and Recovery regarding use of healthcare information technology in provision of mental health services.  

The Center, part of the Coalition of Behavorial Health Agencies Inc., provides assistance to the New York City mental health provider community through expert trainings, focused technical assistance, evaluation, information dissemination and special projects.

The interview is here:

The themes I discussed will be familiar to readers of this blog.
