Re: EHR are a success in Europe
I agree that we can learn a lot from the success and failures of others outside of the US. It does seem like we are trying to reinvent the wheel. It also seems that we are aiming a little to high with our expectations of what the technology can do at present. Perhaps using systems that would transmit documents back and forth with know protocols should have been rolled out before trying codify everything and make data discrete. There could be benefit to the approach we are trying, but we are trying to fly and we can't even walk yet.
