Fake patient data could have been uploaded through SAP medical app

SAP fixes an SQL injection vulnerability in its mobile EHR that allowed hackers to access and insert erroneous records into patient charts.

98.2 Percent of Participating Providers Using athenahealth’s EHR Have Successfully Attested for Meaningful Use Stage 2

Athenahealth reports that 98 percent of its customer base has attested for MU2. The company is also announcing that it will extend its ICD-10 and MU guarantees to also include PQRS and Shared Savings Program support.

This is why you shouldn’t believe that exciting new medical study

Vox analyzes medical research findings over the years, finding that only six percent of published medical studies are well-designed and relevant enough to influence patient care, but that despite this the number of published studies has increased 300 percent in the last 25 years.

  1. Mr. H – did Athena really report: “Athenahealth reports that 98 percent of its customer base has attested for MU2.”?

    I thought I saw another adjective in there – “participating”. And actually, upon reading it, two qualifiers.

    WATERTOWN, Mass., March 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — athenahealth, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based services and mobile applications for medical groups and health systems, today announced that 98.2 percent of participating health care providers who use athenaOne®, the company’s fully integrated cloud-based services for EHR, practice management and patient engagement, successfully attested for Meaningful Use Stage 2 in 2014.

    Can Athena differentiate All the Users of its EHR from Participating Users of it’s EHR?

    98.2 % is pretty sweet if it is of ALL THEIR EHR USERS.

    It’s not so sweet if it is yet another rigged Athena number that hides the truth.

    They have plenty of spokespeople – can one of them speak to this interesting use of the English language?
