In 2nd Look, Few Savings
From Digital Health Records

New York Times, by Reed Abelson & Julie Creswell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2013 9:26:07 AM

The conversion to electronic health records has failed so far to produce the hoped-for savings in health care costs and has had mixed results, at best, in improving efficiency and patient care, according to a new analysis by the influential RAND Corporation. Optimistic predictions by RAND in 2005 helped drive explosive growth in the electronic records industry and encouraged the federal government to give billions of dollars in financial incentives to hospitals and doctors that put the systems in place. “We’ve not achieved the productivity and quality benefits that are unquestionably there for the taking,” said

When I go to the doctor now he spends his time staring at his laptop screen, asking required questions, and typing my answers. He used to be a sharp, intuitive physician full of good advice and now he seldom even looks at me. In the days when we used to actually interact, he expressed his extreme dislike of Obamacare. None of these changes represent improvements in patient care. Big surprise.

At this Med Center an electronic record system was rushed into "service" to met a deadline for millions of dollars in subsidies. Chaos ensued and the system remains a monumental PITA, and more importantly , a significant distraction from patient care. I´m pretty sure the providers of these systems have been generous to Obambi Dumbo.

I agree with #1, the Doctor now spends so much time staring at the laptop, he doesn´t even listen to me anymore.

He even jokes about it saying: "I used to be a better Doctor before I became a Data Entry Clerk"

Of course, obama´s GE buddies obtain a wad of corporate welfare from this scam. But the real issue is control. It´s mostly about control.

I thought the privacy laws were still in effect, mostly to protect under-age girls getting abortions from their parents.

I had a medical procedure last year. The check in woman asked me all sorts of questions that my primary care physician already had on record. She said she had to go through all this stuff because they can´t access my records.

As a physician with expertise in electronic medical records (EMR’s) I can assure you that they were never intended or expected to lower costs. They were intended to federalize your medical history and your doctor’s practice information. They have not lowered costs or improved efficiency, quite the opposite, but they have opened the portal for government perusal of your private health information, despite HIPPA protections, by the way.

As a health care provider using an electronic medical record program in my office since 2007, I can guarantee you that my productivity has decreased. I can´t see as many patients as before when I scribbled perfectly good records.

Posters 4 and 8 are quite correct. The health control bill (a.k.a "Obamacare") mandates all providers use these systems by 2014. It´s yet another example of Chronie Capitalism providing huge payoffs to the makers of these systems, most of whom are well connected politically. But more than that the law demands these systems be standardized and interoperable so that your entire medical history can be accessed anywhere, anytime, by almost anybody including the government. The potential for abuse is huge. For example, they fully intend to "study" the data to find evidence that preferred groups such as Blacks and Homosexuals are being underserved. The next step will be to demand care providers meet racial and gender quotas or face penalties. I happen to work on these developing these systems and the government stipulated requirements include being able to generate such reports.

Doctors now spend their time looking at the screen and keying data, after taking your credit card number. That may be good, because the next time you come, you get another doctor, who says he can´t find anything. Not that there is nothing. No, the qualification is that he "can´t find anything". Shouldn´t that be cheaper, as your problem is left unresolved, and you have received no value? No, it is not.

Any physician could have told you digital health records improve NOTHING.

Most "health care providers" (that term is used to blur the distinction between you actually seeing an MD, versus some one else, and to reduce the prestige of MD´s) spend more time with the computer than with the patient.

Electronic records allow bean-counters to "assess" the "quality" of care people get, by documenting how many "quality indicators" have been "checked". As to whether your actual condition has been appropriately diagnosed and treated...well that´s to complicated to measure, so they don´t really measure that....

I have looked at electronic medical records, and been unable to actually tell why the patient saw that doctor, of what the doctor actually thought the problem was. E-records are simply hideous.

They took a photo of me for my EMR at my eye Dr.´s no less. And yes, it´s all about centralizing your personal info for the government. I was an insurance fraud investigator for years with subpoena power. Even when we got someone´s records you still had to decipher the Dr.´s writing to see what was in the record, now it´s all there in black & white including your photo. ....and I´m guessing with a single subpoena, one would be able to get someone´s entire history from all providers for the "big picture" if you know what I mean. I have no problem with this if there is a valid investigative purpose, but this EMR is ripe for abuse.

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
