the identification of the wrong doctor or nurse with a patientís records.
That can't be good especially if the patient is unresponsive and no family member is around to correct the error!

I have friends in NSW. I guess I won't ask how their health care is working!

Abstract of the Master's Thesis this can't be interesting reading! I had hoped it was not in English so I'd have an excuse not to look! hysterical.gif

Did I mention I have a doctor's appt. today? Not the things to know before you go to your physician!!!

The doctor-patient linkup was for ER treatments and i would actually presume it was data entry errors rather than system error.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

i was visiting a friend at a major hospital implementing electronic health records.
a doctor sat at the pc for hours attempting to document his work.
hours wasted not caring for patients.

i personally know of doctors who will retire early before obama-care hits full force in the u.s.

loss of that kind of experience = health care erosion.

I called for a doctor's appt. last Thursday. I told the receptionist that I was in the "inactive" file because I hadn't been there for several years. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". She was unable to add me to the appointment list. Then she tried to put me in as a new patient and the software wouldn't let her do that either. I'm not sure if I am in the system but I had the appointment yesterday and filled out the old paper forms again.

How does this have anything to do with computer security and networking? That's my question.

I won't be offended if you remove my posts.
I tend to think I'm in the water cooler and go off on a tangent.

We NEVER remove anyone's posts here at Scot's. We just sweep them under the rub (make invisible) or we move them to the appropriate locations. I will do the latter right now, actually. wink.gif

perhaps eric & securitybreach, you didn't read the article and as such, my post automatically merits dissing by placement in the water cooler.

it is a very real failed attempt at ehr.
it does have to do with networking and security both.

Well I had read it the other day when you first posted it. I was mainly just responding to Eric's responses. Keep up the great work, we appreciate the posts. thumbsup.gif

thx, eric & securitybreach.

done carefully, ehr (electronic health records) could have a positive impact on the quality of healthcare.
done poorly, real people suffer, and could suffer more than if the ehr thing didn't exist,
as the clinical folks are all too busy fooling with ehr, and not patients.
