Issues/concepts/ideas to consider in your investigation may include but not be limited to:
1. What are the societal benefits?
2. What are the patient benefits?
3. What are the provider benefits?
4. How does society benefit? (This is a different question than #1 above. When I ask how, I am seeking the ‘mechanism’ by which the benefits accrue. Thus, if a societal benefit is reduced cost, then HOW does the cost get reduced?)
5. How does the patient benefit?
6. How does the provider benefit?
7. For each stakeholder category, how do the costs of technology and/or program investment compare to the benefits?
8. What are the current barriers in each case to realizing the benefits?
