Now here’s the best of what YOU had to say.

  • An FAQ of EMR meaningful use rules. “Since the Final Meaningful Use and Standards Rules were released last week, many people have emailed me questions, which I’d like to share generally.”
  • Epocrates to try $75 million IPO again. “It’s the second stab at an IPO for the San Mateo, Calif.-based company, which filed for a $75 million offering in 2008 before pulling it back as the economy cratered.”
  • The demonization of ‘rationing’. “In the past words like Queer have been reclaimed by those against whom they have been thrown. Perhaps it is time for Dr. Berwick to grab the rationing bull by the horns and claim it. Actually, I think the proper time is a few years off. The general public isn’t ready to listen yet.”
  • A Tea Party for doctors. “Why is the National Doctors’ Tea Party necessary? The AMA would have you believe that it represents all the M.D.’s, when only 17% of practicing physicians are members. Without the AMA’s endorsement, Obamacare might not have passed.”
