  1. Breeches, privacy invasions, delays, excess costs, bond degradations, and zero evidence of overall medical benefits for the EHR systems, yet you continue to promote them and their vendors. Have you thought of covering the IRS investigation of HIM$$? Just wonderin

  2. So what happened to “you can keep your doctor” with ACA? Sounds like it will be VERY narrow networks, very limited choice. What a great program. How do I sign up again?

  3. @bamboozled

    So you seem logical in your assessment of the current EHR moonscape. But why does the FDA claim that there is not any evidence for benefit of antibacterial substances in soaps; and concomitantly allow EHRs to pervade the entirety of medical care without any evidence of benefit? You would think that reasonable minds would insist on surveillance for adverse events, at the least. To my knowledge, there ain’t none.
