+ - Digital Medical records malfunctions aren't required to be reported to FDA->

Submitted by LPCalendarGirl
LPCalendarGirl (707954) writes "Digital medical records are being pushed into service in the US currently with incentives and penalties imposed beginning in 2015.

Patients have died due to problems with these systems. You may find the following excerpt as shocking as I did.

"Unlike U.S. medical-device makers, which must report all malfunctions, serious injuries and deaths involving their products to the FDA, software companies that make electronic medical records are under no such requirement.""
