  1. Seems like the only articles I ever see is how much EHRs have damaged the practice of medicine, and these complex regulatory games CMS plays, is worsening the problem. Its time for CMS to think about just getting out of the way of vendors and providers to make EHRs work for them. CMS and ONC interference has complete hammered the innovation and usefulness (along with safety, security, interop, efficiency, etc) of EHRs. Maybe its time to get out of the way CMS. If you read the MACRA proposal comments, its hard to find any that are anything but “STOP THIS” from actual providers. And that is not good. I know they have been feeding the media that they are listening but reality, they are doing nothing different, if not adding more modules (clinical practice improvement? Puhlease). Everyone can argue that costs are too high, but value based care is an unproven model, if not every attempt Pioneer ACO, etc have been VERY costly (even though CMS doesn’t count the costs of implementation, maintenance, etc). Everyone appreciates trying new things, but not as a penalty experiment. Should be bonus only.
