I think it is pathetic that someone can just post a thread with someone's name on it.And that opens a door to all the "liar's"..to come in.
I only hope that works well for them in their real lives, because I can tell you it does nothng for you on here!
Dr. Kitck and his family are very good people, please shut up.

I like him as a doctor and a person. Along with everyone else in the office. I would definately recomend him. I also like the fact that you don't have to wait for hours like some doctors offices to get seen.

He is closing his practice because of Obamacare. Impeach the weasel so we can retain our good doctors and our national sanity.

He's closing his office because a law passed in 2009 requires doctors to use modern electronic records in 2014 and he's too cheap/slow to make the transition. He pointed at Obamacare, since that's the only healthcare law you rubes seem to care about, but he's wrong.

You are absolutely correct...he is blaming the wrong law for electronic health records. EHR was required in HIPPA in 1996 and the HITECH act that was introduced by Bush in 2004 that eventually became part of the ARRA in 2009. EHR is required in the ACA but for sure isn't the first law to require it

Has your DR asked if you own a firearm? That is now required by the "law" objected to by your retiring DR. HHS (Sebelius) has imposed that question on all Doctors. The best answer, of course is "none of your business, Doc" but O'Care has added (or subtracted) that little bit of inquiry into the confidentiality of Dr - Patient relationships. Your Dr/Pt records now get reported to HHS electronically. O'care is enforced by IRS so your HHS records are the "property" of IRS. Having fun yet?

Cowboy, I am not sure what you have been smoking out there in Wyoming, but it has cracked your brain. That is not a question that has been imposed on anyone. Show me proof. Where, as in send me the link to the law, does it say that this is required? I want to know.
Well

Kiteck is clearly obfuscating and concealing the REAL reason for his practice closing:

the recent decrease in the world's leech population and the rising cost of quill pens.

More subtle, KUBoPeep. For the entire national history, words exchanged between Doctor and patient, like those between Attorney and Client, Priest and penitent, Husband and Wife are "privileged communications." Statements made by a patient to his doctor are privileged and cannot be repeated in a Court of law or anywhere else without the patieny's knowing and voluntary permission. Files (medical records, eg, containing such privileged statements are (were) beyond the reach of investigators and judicial subpoena. Electronic medical records have allowed another pair of eyes to see those patient/doctor confidential statements. HHS simply began "asking" physicians to "inquire" as to whether a patient keeps a firearm(s) anywhere. With a grin, my long time GP asked me that "innocent" question. I asked "what in h--l that had to do with my examination?" At that, he told me that Doctors had been "requested" by HHS (Ms Sebelius) to make inquiry. That conversation was governed by two privileges: Doctor/patient and Attorney/client. Since I am now retired, I cannot do your legal research for you. Ask your lawyer (or doctor).

On another subject raised by your post, I am a "war baby" and never got involved in the boomer fascination with (smoking or otherwise) using controlled substances. I gave up tobacco 30 years ago.(alcohol 34 years ago).

Sorry Cowboy, but you've obviously missed in the news how the NSA has been spying on EVERYONE, phone calls, emails, credit card purchases. Do you seriously think that they don't have access to electronic medical records? NSA agents are using their information to do detailed back ground check on people they don't like, people they think they might like, all with no warrants.

Personally I think it's the spirit of the spying and lying about that is the worst part of it. Realistically I think any actionable intelligence will be so buried in a mountain of garbage that they won't figure anything out until it's too late. Remember how they announced that they received a threat about 9/11 but the threat wasn't translated until 2 days after the fact? Now they have even bigger mountains of information to sift through.

That's where warrants are useful in reducing the wasted resources and therefore increasing the yield of useful information. Electronic medical records don't help the doctor or the patient. In the event that a new doctor sees you in the ER, they will not have access to those records from the first doctor's office.

Kitech was in an office by himself. To upgrade to the software and hardware required would have cost him about $150,000. Yeah you can say that he had notice years ago and should have done it piecemeal, but most likely he decided that he was old enough and tired enough that he'd just save his money and retire once it became mandatory unless by some luck the ACLU or some other class action put an end to it before hand.

This doctor is closing his practice because Affordable Care is putting doctors on electronic record keeping and this doc did not want to do that. He said himself that he and his staff know nothing about computers so I guess he works like the doctors of the Wild, Wild West since computers have been around for 40 years now.

Electronic record keeping prevents a patient from getting multiple medications from numerous doctors like the lovers of those pill mills out there and the Oxycontin users. Electronic records also helps prevent fraud in the Medicare-Medicaid systems.

No. The requirement for electronic records was passed by the Bush administration. It wasn't Obama. Also the electronic records have nothing to do with prescription surveillance. That's the KASPAR system which has been around since at least the Clinton administration but has nothing to do with Clinton as it is a state system that now is tied into a few other states as well.

Blaming the Affordable Care Act for being 25 years out of date is just one of the indicators of how out of touch with reality he is.
