It's sad situation all around. On one side you have the good doctor who saw a wrong and wanted to make it right. His peers insisted that they did nothing wrong.
Since there wasn't anything written in the progress notes but the date, it was like a kid in the toy story, wanting everthing he saw.

This is atrocious. We need healthcare reform in this country. These people are the reason we can;t get any real progress into this industry.

However, health care data and patient records seem to be the two regions that seem promising for such growth. Think of it, one data process from the doctors visit to the billing. Then we can ensure stuff like this never happens again. It can and must be done, soon.
