    Gopal Singh Says:

    Telemed panacea, but the report failed to mention the degree to which the “rural ER” is wired, epsecially if they used CPOE or other electronic records and ordering systems.

    If they used CPOE, then teledicine served to correct the errors facilitated by CPOE.

    Huh? Says:

    @ Gopal: This doesn’t even make sense. Mr. H, your blog is steadily becoming a less valuable product as it attracts more of the fringe element drawn to sensationalism.

    Totally agree. Too many nonsense or attack posts. That’s how things break down and lose value.

    Glad to see Nuance drop. Short the stock and heavy into puts.

    Commenters 2 and 3 are missing the point. Those invested in HIT look for any ray of hope that they can justify the excessively expensive systems they promote and sell. Good doctors do not need the disruptions and distractions caused by HIT that is not ready or primetime, just like healthcare.gov.

    Go long on $aapl for the holidays.

    Happy holidays to the Histalk team.
