    Government Forced Use of Electronic Health Records Harms Patients

    in Politics Conservative

    Dr. Jeffrey Singer: The ongoing debate over ObamaCare has obscured another important example of government meddling in medicine. Starting this year, physicians like myself who treat Medicare patients must adopt electronic health records, known as EHRs, which are digital versions of a patient’s paper charts. If doctors do not comply, our reimbursement rates will be cut by 1%, rising to a maximum of 5% by the end of the decade…I am an unwilling participant in this program. In my experience, EHRs harm my patients more than they help.


     


    Dr. Singer practices general surgery in Phoenix and is an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute.

    Who has access to Electronic Health Records (EHR)?

    in Health

    In order to maintain privacy and confidentiality, there are rules of access to Electronic Health Records (EHR) that can sometimes present barriers to delivering the best care.


    Tracy Zervakis and her daughter recently had quite an adventure trying to get the right medicine at the right time, and ran into several roadblocks imposed by the access rules around EHR at her hospital.


    While it sounds like a good idea to restrict access to those with a "need to know," in practice it sometimes get in the way.  Perhaps we need to re-think those rules, not only for the events in a peaceful day at the office, but also in an emergency.  


    Joyce and Mike speak with Tracy about her adventure and about ideas for improving the flow of medical information to patients, to emergency personnel, and to all those who really do "need to know" in order to deliver the right care at the right time.

    Get Real! with Mark and Kally - The Key to Good Health is in Your Gut

    in Health

    One of the keys for good health is a healthy digestive system.  Digestive complaints cost Americans $50 billion each year in medical bills and absence from work.  It is fairly easy to correct.  Tune in and find out how.  Most people, including doctors, don't know that digestive problems can lead to allergies, autoimmune diseases, depression, fatigue, and even ADHD.  Your digestive tract is THE KEY to whole body health.  It is the first place I start when working with people.


    You'll learn why one of the top OTC and prescription medication is interferring with your bodies ability to digest and absorb nutrients and doesn't really solve the problem your taking it for in the first place.

    Listen to the "Older and Active" show here on BTR coming up at 8:00 CDT for tips on how boomers and above can get/stay healthy.If being healthy isn't your thing, how about celebrating Cellophane Tape or Grape Popsicles? Or you can go through the day singing, "Who's afraid of the big bad Wolf?" That should make those around you scratch their heads. If that doesn't work, wear bloomers on the job today.
