EPIC grades privacy efforts in Obama administration

Got your attention didn't it? Why the silly mania about any topic that involves Epic?? What this story is actually about is the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), which is about to issue a report card on the Obama administration's efforts to protect the privacy of American citizens: medical privacy, consumer protection, cyber-security (an oxymoron?), etc.

Anyway, Healthcare Informatics grades these blog sites by how many "hits" each entry receives, and we have a sort of competition each month to see which blogger is ringing the bell. By capitalizing on the sacred name of Epci, I figure I'll cop a first place in September, and by the envy of all my fellow bloggers...

Now if anybody wants some REAL news, I'd be glad to give the low-down on Meditech's "Release 6," QuadraMed's progress with QCPR, etc, but no one seems to want to read anything that doesn't involve Judy, right?

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
