Waiting Room Reading: The infamous Forbes article about blogs arrived in the magazine mail this week. It reads like a bunch of sour grapes from people who can no longer maintain tight control on their company's PR spin.
Also in the waiting room magazines this week - "Scary New Medical Mistakes" in Woman's Day. I saw the headline peeking out above all the other magazines in my exam room and my chest tightened. Usually those articles are about how about every mole is a potential skin cancer and should be biopsied indiscriminately or how doctor undertreat hypothyroidism, most of which serve to undermine a patient's confidence in her physician. However, this one is about potential errors arising from electronic medical records, prescriptions, and email. It's actually worth reading, and makes some valid points. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a working link. posted by Sydney on
