Whether or not other vendors are willing to make their products interoperable, government often overrides industry’s financial passions to achieve a larger public good. I’m all for people with vision problems. However now I must put my most talented staff upon this problem also before sorting out the basics of transmitting information. Inside our iPhone-reverent age group, the dismissal of EHR critics as Luddites is supported by the recognition that technologies we once couldn’t imagine we now can’t live without. But the assumption that EHR evolution will mirror the cell phone’s trajectory offers three notable flaws. The EHR is usually touted as a cost-saving, quality-promoting device, though cost-conserving projections have been debunked and data on quality are blended.2 Although we’ve made progress in individual safety only by carefully examining our errors, the hazards posed by technology are anticipated to right themselves somehow.Pfizer, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Forest Laboratories, Pharmacia, and Upjohn donated antihypertensive medications also. None of the ongoing businesses had any part in the look of the study, the accrual or analysis of data, or the planning of the manuscript.18 The consequences of blood-pressure targets on trial outcomes were evaluated with the use of Cox proportional-hazards regression with adjustment for five prespecified baseline factors and randomized drug assignment. An interaction term of follow-up time with the log-changed baseline protein-to-creatinine ratio was included as a covariate to account for a change in the hazard ratio for baseline urinary protein excretion as time passes. A time-dependent indicator adjustable for study stage was also included to allow the baseline hazard to change at the completion of the trial.
