Why not make it more functional by creating one national data storage for all medical data? Then medicine can be taken out of business of HIE, data storage and retrieval, teaching computer skills to patients, wasting paper with pt. lists, structuring data for the govt. and any other garbage they can think of! Then we can all use the STRUCTURED DATA to improve pt. outcomes. Docs can than stop guessing what other docs are doing based on fuzzy subjective findings given by pt. A national data base is the only way to go. Let govt. police their own HIPPA, mine the data they want from their own storage. Stop the wasteful committees, councils, paperpushing and work on something that puts doctors and hospitals back to doing HEALTHCARE!!!
