He raises some really valid points, most of all the concern regarding the health information change. Treating people when you donG«÷t have his or her medical records available is tantamount to opting blind.

re: Boston Hospital CIO Reflects After Bombing
He raises some very valid points, most importantly the
concern regarding the health information exchange. Treating people when you
donG«÷t have their medical records available is tantamount to going in blind.
There are so many complications that can arise if you donG«÷t have the complete past
and present medications, allergy list, or any adverse reactions to any of
these. In cases such as the Boston City bombings a complete health information
exchange could mean the difference between life and death.
