"FREE" SOCIALIST SOFTWARE TO HELP WRECK PATIENT PRIVACY.
Medicare, which says the lack of electronic records is one of the biggest impediments to improving health care, has decided to step in. In an unprecedented move, it said it planned to announce that it would give doctors - free of charge - software to computerize their medical practices. An office with five doctors could save more than $100,000 by choosing the Medicare software rather than buying software from a private company, officials say.
Socialist software plus HIPAA anti-privacy regulations. No further comment needed.
(Thanks to SJ for the headsup.)
