Re: Learning from others
It will be probably a landmark event at Austin's BCE next week to see the demonstrations of intereroperability live. One hopes though that they don't end up with any big surprises in pulling off the program. It will be interesting in any event.

Re: Learning from others
@dcawrey: Agreed.  Reminds me of an interview I conducted at a conference last month.  The interviewee did an on-the-spot product demo and it made the benefits of the technology crystal-clear to me.

Later in the conference, the company did a presentation of the product on the show floor, and it was a little clunky because of the formal nature of it.  Because I had gotten a personal demonstration, it proved to be good additional material to enhance my understanding of the product, but by itself was not as effective.

Re: Learning from others
When it comes to product demos, I think it is really cool to offer them on a show floor rather than just doing it as a presentation. 

Sometimes I think presentations are a bit too scripted, demos that are done over and over in real time have a better sense of authenticity.

@Susan: And what if the government wishes to install a GPS tracker on my car and leave it there forever for no other reason than what if I get carjacked some day?

As an attorney, believe me, I'm very big into planning for what-ifs and contingencies -- but there does come a point, on a case-by-case basis, where the what-ifs are outweighed by other considerations.

@briandnewby: Of course, this issue isn't limited to EHRs or the healthcare sector.  It's yet another example of how growing complexity in business is carrying an increasing productivity cost.

Re: Learning from others
Yes, records mismanagement is the root problem. However, even the paper records could be saved for later consultations. Cloud-based EHRs help in many situations, Joe, even save lives. Opting in, or out cloud-based EHRs is a personal decision. However, how can you be so sure? What if in case of emergency paramedics would wish to be able to access your health record in matter of seconds since your life depends on it? You never know, I'm afraid. It's like betting. You can never be sure if you will win, or not. -Susan

One phone company for the entire country, Joe? Decades and decades ago? Less people. Less phones. Less everything. Telecom evolution needed to grow and evolve. :D -Susan

Re: Learning from others
I also think some of the failure of EHRs ties back to inception. EHRs were not created at the request of doctors or nurses. They were invented to solve the problems you speak of - lack of record management, but also to address continuity of patient records. No longer do patients go to the only doctor in town for all of their medical needs. The modern doctors office has numerous locations and patients see a seperate specialist for every condition. EHR became a problem because the end user was looking for modern convenience and probably didn't know how to beneficially participate with a developer to capture their specific needs. In the past, if you want to note an allergy, the doctor noted it in the margin at the top of the chart. Now, a field has to be chosen. This issue isn't limited to healthcare of course. But, EHR became the example because every end user had a different vision and all the companies that started develop the products responded to these individual visions. It's hard to have interoperability or even to link databases when the information that is collected varies so greatly between systems.
