Assigning Blame

A consistent theme of this blog is:  the lack of electronic medical records in medicine is due to the payment system, not to the personalities of doctors. Since this is the only place you are likely to find this point of view expressed, I go out of my way to verify it as evidence mounts here and there.  In rural Kansas, doctors who provide care in multiple settings (office, hospital, nursing home) find that EMRs make sense. Therefore? Therefore, they use them.

    John, your problem is you expect people to use common sense.

    Big brother intends for you to have EMRs, whether or not they make any sense.
