  1. Wow that ONC Rucker’s blog post was obnoxious.
    FIrst EHR, FIrst stanford this, First ED attending? Really? Hmmm.
    This is the problem with ONC. Arrogant, backslapping, policy wonks
    with little to no current clinical experience with cert EHR, MU, PQRS etc.
    The current policies of MU MACRA certEHR have set back real innovation, interop
    at least a decade. Looks like that is going to continue. So forget any real improvements
    for the next 7-10 years. By that time, we are going to be at a crisis stage with burned out MDs,
    and no one left that wants to play these stupid reporting games. If he had ANY idea about the
    climate out here, he would stop cert EHR, Stop all reporting for MACRA, ACI, MIPS, MU, etc.
    Stop all penalties, audits, clawbacks, etc. Let HIT vendors work DIRECTLY with front line MDs for
    real innovation, interop and reform.
