I’ve written up my thoughts on the FDA regulating EMR. I hope the FDA stays far away from EMR.

There are lots of EMR jobs out there. If you’re looking for a better job or a first time health IT job, check out Healthcare IT Central.

This makes for a good headline, but let’s be honest about the fraud that’s happening. It was happening without EMR. Plus, I think that much of the increased reimbursement is more about doctors finally billing appropriately and not fraud. That’s something that many people don’t want to face. Certainly there is plenty of fraud in healthcare, but I think overall EMR software is going to better help track it down versus causing more fraud. What do you think?
