The topic of “collaboration” is a big one now, particularly in my work with healthcare organizations implementing advanced EMR technology and CPOE (Computerized Physician Order Entry).  Collaboration can certainly be a throw-away piece of jargon, but it is a proficiency that will be required of medical staffs and groups as they move forward into the future of technology-assisted decision making.
