Comment My mom died of a "superbug" (Score 2) 75

She went in with heart issues but it was the "superbug" that killed her.
I was so pissed that it was not mentioned on the death certificate, just the heart issues.
It is debatable if the heart issues would not have killed her anyway, but it was the infection that killed her.

Comment Frankly the software stinks (Score 4, Interesting) 228

I am involved as a consultant to several practices and frankly the software stinks.
Buggy, incomplete, error prone, and over priced.
If I had a nickel for every time I have been told it will be fixed in the next release I would be a millionaire.
I feel sorry for the medical professionals who have to deal with the garbage software on a day to day basis and the consumers who get sub-par service both medical and billing because of it.

One example is:
If one thing is billed another is automatically added to the bill because they were often used together.
The problem: They are no longer recommended to be used together as a better and cheaper test has replaced one of them.
A year and a half later the problem is still in the software and if someone forgets to manually remove it the insurance rejects payment and the patient gets a bogus bill for several hundred dollars.
