  • tovarichpeter says Bob, first, the "guy" is a woman. Second, the information on paper charts cannot be accessed electronically, and third, "the mystery" is a major problem. There seems to be an inability to grasp that the fact that most Americans do not a single coherent electronic medical record is any sort of problem! It is obviously a huge and potentiaily life threatening problem for any individual seeking medical tx,, andseverely limits the enormous potential value of electronic medical records for research particularly in cancer research which is genomically based....
  • tovarichpeter says John Your experience with Kaiser is an excellent example of exactly what the author is talking about except that she is advocating that Kaiser's EMR system and others like it be the model for the rest of the country? Kaiser serves only a very small percentage of the U.S.patient population. You seem to be saying that since Kaiser does a great job for it's small percentage of the population then there is no problem. In fact since Kaiser does have a model EMR system, there is no excuse that this huge problem does exist for the rest of the country. Re-read the article. It concerns a life and death issue. ....
  • dodgerfanjohn says "If you had actually read the article you would have learned that that is not possible sine the information does not exist and/or is not accessible." I did read the article. Everything Bob said I agree with plus I posted an example of one of the largest hmo's in the U.S. that makes great efforts to provide easy online access to its doctors and to patients....

  • Strategist says bgamall4 says I appreciate your research, Bigsby. But wages are steadily dropping in a global society, so they still may end up being over the head of most people. Normal cars would also be unaffordable if wages really kept falling. bgamall4 says And that was a great article because it said auto cars are programmed to stop on yellow. Las Vegas drivers will mow them down. Las Vegas drivers will never buy a car programmed to stop on yellow. There won't be any "Las Vegas drivers" when self driving cars become common.

Which, of course, addresses all the outlandish claims you made earlier. Oh, hang on... And are cars beyond the means of everyone except the rich in the US and other developed countries now? Do you think car companies only want to sell driverless cars to the very rich? Seriously, you need to start thinking through your arguments a little (lot) more. They are becoming more and more laughable, which is saying something. ...

And just to be fair - even though I am not much into the declarations of Utopias - Iwog did point out how dependent and fragile the economy was in Chile when it came to things related to China which is not helping the current situation.
