I had the privilege to hear Marc Probst speak on Friday and he was everything I hoped he’d be. I’ll be writing a number of posts from things I heard from Marc Probst over the next couple days, but I wanted to start with one thing Marc Probst said that was very interesting.

Marc said that he was afraid that the EMR stimulus money is going to make the rich richer.

Reminded me a little of my Big Winners from the ARRA EHR Stimulus Money post. I’m afraid like Marc that this is very accurate. The EMR stimulus money is going to end up in the rich clinics pockets.
