  1. 35 billion in MU/HITECH, and we have 6% feeling like interop works for them. My guess is that those 6% don’t even understand the question. I dare someone to find a SINGLE MD that thinks you can find actionable info on any EHR that is different from their own.
    Its high time to stop all this madness and start over.

    Second, DOD is spending 4 billion on an EHR and they “hope” to be up and running in 6 years. Man how about that for big money and SUPER slow implementation, where is their MACRA/HITECH push? Oh they are the government. They don’t get penalized.
    Pfffffft.
