    let's not get started on insurance companies and their role in obfuscating our information.

    ...it is not up to an organization such as the AMA or the government to restrict that access and ownership. Your papers appear to be out of order. Please come with us quietly.

    While it may be true that the momentum of the old is hard to derail or redirect, that equally applies to getting momentum going with new technologies. My doctor's office recently moved to a network computer system, including a database server, wireless tablet PCs and more. Since that time it has been a never ending stream of minor to major problems with the technology itself and the user learning curve. It seems now we've given them another layer or three of excuses as to why I can't get a result back. Now every script for the sample lab is sent via computer. Of course when that doesn't work, no one at either site knows why and the fix is to resubmit it via the computer. The return of the results is equally a vague process. So far this has resulted in stuff dropped both directions, where the manual process was slow but very reliable. Sorry for the rant on this one.

    I suspect the problem is not that medical providers don't use technology, but they guard information from the patient. Why? It decreases liability and fosters the traditional paternalistic and controlling role of the medical personnel, particulatly physicians. A large number of tests are analyzed in India the night of the day they are made. A large number of test results are posted on internet sites. It is more likely that the medical center you use has the results the following day, but are not willing to give them to you. Although medicine has certainly become a business, and a very lucrative one at that, it has yet to view the patient as a customer.
