re: Medical Experts Pitch Controversial Health IT Safety Plan
I am assuming #1 that they mean to establish an entity to investigate patient deaths and injuries as discovered by health IT? And then further it says the FDA should regulate these technologies. FDA has no money now, seriously, where do they think they are going to get the money to do that?

There are a plethora of initiatives and databases that are either mining or looking to ways to assess patient safety at various points of a person's health, clinical trials, postmarketing of drugs and devices; claims databases, collaborations etc. The point is not to have one more. The point is to figure out what you've got and go with it.

But I may be missing the point here if someone could enlighten me....
