Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
George Bush admin ushered in the age of electronic health records (EHRs). 2006 is a year I will never forget, because I became acquainted with the first Director of  Health Information, David Brailler, by chance in a radio program interview. I was shocked, immediately understanding from his discursion on the "benefits" which would accrue to "consumer-patients" (his term) that the WH had created a commercial market and data property rights which teh people would never fathom.

What did I do then? I monitored the trade rag "Government Health IT" for nearly a decade and watched products and services --especially data warehouses-- in this newly formed sector of the unregulated ICT industry expand like the universe.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
