Currently there are "2 comments" on this Article:

  1. I read the ECRI report with interest. I liked the statement: “Shortsighted approaches to HIT can lead to adverse consequences,” caution the authors. INDEED.

    The 800 problems it reviewed are merely the tip of the iceberg. Kudos to the ECRI for being truthful.

    As for the HHS Safety Plan, I like reading the CHIME comment. Where are the others published? I would like to see Judy Faulkner’s comment.

    Thank you for all you do.

  2. Mayor Bloomberg has a lot to brag about, but what were the overall costs, ED usage, adverse drug events, and overall outcomes such as heart attacks and death? I opine: would the money have been better spent on nurses and home care, and what improvements were made from this experiment?
