When we focus on the map and ignore the territory, what happens to the patient?

Tired of being told by people who don't do it, that the task of CPOE is not a distraction. It is.

And reported no finding. I will ask about the impact of the event on my present abilities.

I do it all the time and understand how important it is, but I have never understood where it got the name 'The History'

Less can be both better and more but is rarely easy or simple.

#‎NoMUwithoutMe‬ ... What does that mean? you may ask. MU, or Meaningful Use, is what we're supposed to make of electronic health records. Health care providers get Recovery Act dollars from the federales if they make "meaningful use" of "certified" electronic health records. One of the measures of Meaningful Use is how many patients in a practice "view, download or transmit" their own health records. The current rule: 5% of patients. A proposed rule released in the past month would cut that figure to One Patient. Not one percent of patients - One Patient. We all have a right to our medical records, and getting them and making sure doc A at hospital X can get records from doc B at clinic Y is critical. Often the only way to get from here to there is via the patient. It seems to me that health care providers should make it easy to get copies of records. especially if they're getting federal incentive dollars for having implemented electronic health records. So please join a boatload of interested parties - organizations and individuals - in signing on to the the comment letter of the National Partnership for Women & Families -- read it at this link, and click at the bottom to sign your name via email ... and please tell your friends and neighbors.  If you'd like a little more background, see http://j.mp/1QKu2SP (a post on e-patients.net)

Very well done. Should be required viewing for all hospital leaders and administrators, all risk managers, and for all the rest of us in the health care arena.
 
Primum Non Nocere: Above all, do no harm. Harm is present in today’s healthcare system. We need to admit that so that we can fix it.

Watch TEDMED 2014 speaker Patricia Horoho, Lieutenant General in the U.S. Army and the first woman and first nurse to serve as the Army’s Surgeon General, reveal how health care can cause harm by sins of commission and omission. http://ow.ly/L1G4E

Sometimes the answer is that the question isn't valid.
