Headlines I Wish I Hadn’t Seen

No wonder the VA looks good; they only release the studies they like.

The more doctors use EHRs, the less they like them.

Jurassic Park is impossible.

The feds will be overseeing new health insurance regulations in Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming after those states told HHS they couldn’t or wouldn’t implement the new rules.

    @ The VA article on looking good

    There was a recent audit report out on the VA system, the report exposes that the organization is lacking some major human capital in successfully executing basic it function within the VA network.

    @ EHR Articles

    It seems that majority of dissatisfaction comes from the fact that they have rushed the implementation of EMR and similar HIT systems. Like anything new, it will take time to adopt to this, and the initial stages are confusing and frustrating for everyone.

    @ The Jurassic Park

    This news really breaks my heart. They could at least try to come out with a 3D version of the movie.

    Nothing is impossible.

    No surprise here…

    This is very reassuring.

    Good. I never really believed in dinosaurs in the first place, and this confirms why :)

    I can’t really understand this statement: “The meaningful use incentive program has resulted in more physicians implementing electronic health record systems and using them in advanced ways. Yet doctors’ dissatisfaction with the systems has increased”. If it’s true that physicians’ dissatisfaction is increasing regarding electronic medical records, then why is the number of them using these increasing too? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Hmmm..

    Very interesting. Another way the authorities are forcing states to follow flawed regulations, without allowing them to make their own decisions based on what works best for them. It’s either their way, or the highway…

    @ VA

    This was covered in our backgrounder on the VA. Not only do they only release reports that make them look good, they don’t even bother evaluating areas they know will look bad.

    @ VA

    You know they tried to pressure Coughlin to keep his mouth shut. It’s not okay when the 2nd largest federal agency has few to no external checks. It seems like the GAO and VAOIG have daily reports on how screwed up the VA is. Congressional testimony yields little improvement as the VA is never compelled to comply with law, federal admin regulations, or even tell the truth. At the risk of moderation, I’ll have to temper metaphoric references to the efficacy of VA congressional committee members and “performance” enhancing supplements that could easily be supplied by the same big pharm system that empowers the VA.

    They excel at obfuscation and dissembling. It’s been an organization for profiteering and criminal abuse of federal sourcing laws for the last century. All at the expense of a perpetually marginalized veteran population who are relegated to ineffectual federal health and benefit systems due to political reinforced solidarity.

    Are you freaking kidding me??

    On the HHS implementation, I guess the Federal Government has never heard of the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. How is this not a lawsuit yet?
