re: EHRs Continue To Take A Beating
EHRs have a long way to go, but capturing billing information more accurately and building a secure infrastructure/foundation fist is needed before the automation you seek comes about. I would also be weary of what tasks were automated in healthcare, as that seems to be one of the big concerns for most patients and even providers. I've also found that doctors that move to an EHR only slow down for a short period with proper training, and eventually regain their speed.

Point well taken. If EHRs slow down docs, why will they sign on. Many would rather suffer the penalties. It may be cheaper in the long run.
