  1. Karen DeSalvo should write the fantasy-land version of Health IT for Disney. She is the leader of ONC who is completely tone deaf to the front line providers. Man can she use puffery language. Her visions are delusions of grandeur. Karen, listen to me, as front line providers, we are drowning out here in MU and PQRS, etc regulations, onerous requirements, conflicting rules, etc. Please stop for one minute today and consider that you have damaged and disenfranchised a majority of physicians with all these regulatory requirements of EHR. It will NOT be a learning health system if only 8 percent of physicians are participating. Let doctors be doctors and end this meaningful use nightmare you started.
