  1. A burden on docs??? Considering all of the other burdens placed on nurses and docs with this scheme to digitize health care, what is one more burden? I think it is wonderful idea, and it should go further:

    They should audit the outcomes from the MU experiment, since there is not any proof that the edicts produce improved outcomes.

  2. Not Tired of Suzy is right on…….but I’m sure, Ms. Judy, has already spread enough money around Washington to prevent anyone from dicsovering the dirty little fact that the MU Experiment is a complete fraud and waste of taxpayer dollars….talk about Corporate Welfare at it’s highest point of hypocrisy!
