GOP call me and let's have a discussion on how to make EHRs work to really reduce costs. First you need a national database to collect the data, then you analyse it! DUH! WE needed to be connected first! CALL 203 271 0556.

Question? Dr. Colburn says he still practices medicine when he's not in Washington...hmmmm...does he use electronic medical records or is he still a "paper"doctor? Is this a good question to ask? Granted serving in Congress takes a lot of his time so he could not be the same type of expert that a full time doctor would be..but does he or doesn't he? As I always say there's nothing better than "hands on" experience today when talking about any IT project:)

GOP where is my phone call? Or are you just like the Democrats and just like to hear youself speak? Costs could have been reduced by standardizing all EHR's the way Doc's want not just software engineers and govt. feel is easy for them. Connect everyone via internet stop building stuff that is not needed.
