My data access rant


#1

Tuesday was a bad day.

Basically two different organizations told me I couldn’t get access to data about my own health.

I’ve ranted about it on my blog at http://www.bernardfarrell.com/blog/2007/06/bad-data-day.htm. (I can’t seem to use HTML in the blog posts here at present.)

Sometimes I just question the sanity of the American health care system.

What do you think? Is this because of liability concerns or something else?

Liability is too nice of a term, Bernard. I think it’s plain outright stupidity. Those are the things that drive me nuts too!

I posted a short comment on your blog.

About HTML in here, not sure what could have happened. Sometimes I find myself (not only here, but while browsing at large) in need to restart my browser. Are you using Firefox or a Mac by any chance?
