  1. Wondering if it was just me, so I looked up this definition of “pilot” on the internet:

    ADJECTIVE… “done as an experiment or test before introducing something more widely.”

    With Genesis, I think the majority correctly see the pilot as a test. (Maybe I’m just projecting.) I can’t fathom how any vendor would treat the pilot as anything but their opportunity to put their best foot forward. I think this IS the best foot we’re going to get from these guys. It’s a test and the grade is F.

    Then, there’s a minority (which you seemed to have joined, Mr. H?) that views the pilot as an experiment … apparently the place where these folks are learning how to deploy a baseline-functional EHR? They’re seemingly stumped by operability, never mind interoperability. I think most would call this inappropriate and dangerous.

  2. ““I think VA’s too far down the road at this point,” Baker said.”

    Something something sunk costs fallacy
