Newt, Hillary, and Intel?

First Newt joined her heinous in proposing better security for health care records and increased IT compatability in the medical industry.

Now Intel has jumped on the bandwagon.

Of course, as Medical IT is my bread and butter, I am ecstatic.
However, I am quite concerned about the reliability and security of the proposed systems. Moreover the whole strategy remains flawed.
Technology will not fix poor record keeping. It will only add a layer of complexity.
The systems will only be as good as the Doctors, Nurses, and Secretaries allow. Since this combination is failing now, adding computers will no more improve medicine than it has public school education.
I will not tell you how many doctors can diagnose diseases without lenghty tests, but lack the common sense to delete emails that read "You have 1 the Albanian 10TT0".

While there are some wonderful computer programs, these only work when implimented as part of a larger set of management and patient-doctor-nurse-secretary communications. Moreover, any set of changes must also be easy enough to be consistantly practiced, especially in emergencies.

PS. I still preffer AMD.

The anti-War Red-Green-Brown Alliance.

Neo-Nazis have joined their allies in the War on the War on Islamist Terrorism by standing in Solidarity with Mother Sheehan.
I'm sure this won't bother the Isolationist Conservatives who claim merely to be anti-Zionists.
