At the HIMSS blog entitled "Health IT is an essential element to transform the Nation’s healthcare system" (link),
Healthcare providers are adopting certified EHRs and using them for meaningful purposes; thus, achieving Congressional intent to improve the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of care in U.S.
Really? (See my Feb. 2012 post "Hospitals and Doctors Use Health IT at Their Own Risk - Even if Certified.")
Honesty and Good Sense on Electronic Medical Records From Down Under" and this query link on health IT risks).
I warned of this in a Feb. 18, 2009 Wall Street Journal letter to the editor:
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) in place:
The introduction of this act was influenced by the death of more than 100 patients due to a sulfanilamide medication where diethylene glycol was used to dissolve the drug and make a liquid form. See Elixir Sulfanilamide disaster. It replaced the earlier Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906.
