  1. “A Black Book survey on interoperability finds that 70 percent of hospitals are not using any patient information generated outside of their EHR.”

    Pathetic huh? And probably 99% BARELY use patient info outside their own EHR.

    At some point, CMS/ONC will realize that the draconian EHR cert requirements, massive hyper-regulatory data entry activities on front line MDs, has caused extensive harm to the practice of medicine.

    We are in big trouble in this country with non-clinical admins piling on working MDs. All these “value” based reporting actions, P4P, ACO, Bundles, MACRA, etc. are never going to succeed and set back real progress at least a decade. Do people really think big factory corporate medicine is the answer?

    Is anyone listening out there?
