Flash: Dr. David Blumenthal Steps Down As National Coordinator For Health Information Technology.

Dr. David Blumenthal just announced his resignation from the position of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. In this position, Blumenthal led the implementation of a nationwide interoperable, privacy-protected health information technology infrastructure as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Along with this, he led the effort to influence doctors and hospitals to adopt electronic medical record systems.

Dr. Blumenthal will leave this Spring and return to Harvard University.


I guess this might just show how hard all this can be!

Experts know more and more about less and less.

The last post seems to have been accidentally cut off.

May I help the no doubt expert author of that post, hazarding a guess that it should read:

"Fools know less and less about more and more".

I prefer my father's quote -

'There are only so many times you can ram your head into a brick wall before the wall wins'

I love your father's quote --- how about my Professor of Medicine's quote - he used to say "oh Mr ..... , if we thrown enough mud at the wall sooner or later some of it will stick" he said as he tried to educate us ignorant medical students.
