Taking the EHR utopians down a few notches

Share this:


Roy Poses, M.D., in  his Healthcare Renewal site, discusses how the federal government is backing down on some requirements for digital health records after claims of an EHR utopia have been proven false.

He writes:
“In recent months, the hyper-enthusiasts and their government allies have had to eat significant dirt, and scale back their grandiose but risible — to those who actually have the expertise and competence to understand the true challenges of computerization in medicine, and think critically — plans.

“(At this point I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and not call the utopians and hyper-enthusiasts corrupt, just stupid.)”
