The Wolves Are Leading the Sheep

Medical records were created by doctors for the use of themselves and their associates and their consultants…..AND FOR NO OTHER REASON

The purpose of medical records is to maintain quality health care for the benefit of the patient, to provide a doctor personal recall, and to simplify the sharing of information between the patient’s various doctors.

Sharing medical records with attorneys, government officials, and insurance companies, if tested, is probably illegal under the rules of medical privacy.

Many years ago, I proposed that doctors stop treating attorneys. I suggested that the medical malpractice problem would be rapidly solved if we did so.

Maybe if we stopped sending in all of these medical records, we could do away with the royal mess that has been created.

ICD-10 joins MOC and MOL as another nail in the coffin of medicine.

Unfortunately, with the apathy that exists, the wolves will continue to lead the sheep to the slaughterhouse.
