  1. Amazon API to mine EHR…to sell ads to medical products
    My main issue as an MD is that this sounds VERY sketchy from my standpoint.
    The medical record is NOT a place to mine for diagnoses so medical supply companies can send ads to you to purchase their products. Its a super slippery slope and has MANY HIPAA issues. Makes me want to vomit to think all this data entry I am doing is being bought sold and scammed on the patient by the medical industrial complex.
