Adoption of health information technology is rapidly expanding in the United States and digital health will be the standard method for recording health interventions across ambulatory and hospital care sites by 2015. Already, 80% of United States oncologists are expected to be using electronic health records by 2014. The wide spread capture of health data in digital format will enable data analysis on the individual patient and provider level to improve the quality of care and the value of care delivered. On a population health level, the ability to aggregate data across diseases holds promise to accelerate knowledge generation through Rapid Learning Healthcare Systems. The Institute of Medicine and the American Recovery and Re-Investment Act have provided the intellectual basis and early financing for this, so that technology will be not only acquired, but used effectively.However, realizing these objectives in cancer care requires that technologies be developed that standardize data capture, messaging and exchange. Furthermore, health systems need to not only acquire health information technology, but to also transform their workflows and culture to utilize data as a resource for learning. In the United States, professional medical societies such as the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American College of Pathologists are taking a leadership role working with their members, industry and government agencies to educate and guide the re-engineering of cancer care and cancer research.
