  1. The Big Fib person was right.

    This whole rule is being championed by data brokers and a data exploitation industry that now funds or benefits many of these past ONC heads. Be careful of the medical industrial complex!

  2. Without a doubt, Big Fib is correct. The past ONC heads are ALL guilty of conflicts of interest, developed programs only to benefit their respective businesses, and had ZERO interest in how it would affect physicians nurses and patients. Its yet another hyper-regulatory US government complex that will make VERY large monopolies (Epic Cerner, etc), all to the detriment of the actual end users and patients. It has NOT and will never save money, improve care, etc. Do we need ANY more evidence from the levels of dissatisfaction and burnout from actual front line physicians and nurses? When will we learn? It has been 10 years since HITECH and it is BLINDINGLY obvious we set ourselves back at least a decade with the short sighted disaster that “sounded” good.
