  1. Darn, I wanted ONC’s budget to be zero. ONC has only caused massive regulatory activity, absolutely no interop, over burdened MDs, and continues to flail in all areas. They cannot seem to get the idea that they have inflicted major damage to the practice of medicine and set back the usability, interop, efficiency, safety and security at least a decade. Time to shutter ONC’s doors.
