Slashdot | Federal Deadline Hobbling eHealth IT Rollout

Like some commenters, I call BS on this.

The fact of the matter is that healthcare IT systems are a patchwork without any meaningful standards across the board and ugly, hard-to-use “solutions” from a number of vendors. (Ever been to a doctor’s office and see them have no trouble entering something in your e-chart? Yeah, me either.)

I do wish the deadline had stiffer consequences versus just kinda suggesting they do this or lose funding.
