The Washington Post this morning had a distressing article (Lobbying War Ensues Over Digital Health Data) about the wrangling over the EMR dollar. Worse, were the assertions that we have already been abusing patient privacy for profit.
In previous posts I attributed much of the hubbub to paranoia, but if the concerns raised in this article are true I have been naïve.
Give it a read and let me know if it gives you a pit in your stomach.
A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what’s going on.
