  1. Re: Biden’s remarks– I’ve been letting slide all this talk of patient “data” and access to it, feeling it isn’t worth the time to try to stand in a river and push in another direction. Do we really mean data? Most of what I see in motion, even with interoperability initiatives and FHIR API’s, are *records*, which is to say, documents–text representing the documentation of care, mostly in a legal medical record sense. As a clinician, I can say that, no doubt, this information has use and value, especially compared with the alternative. Still, it is far from computable. Biden’s interest in “data sets” shows he is reaching for the latter, and I am beginning to think the lack of distinction is really a problem, expectations-wise.

    Hopefully, ongoing progress in natural language processing (is the language really that natural?) will save us (by which I mean, me, the clinician) from fixing it, by becoming even more of a data entry worker.

    Keep up the good work,
