This is what you get when executives chide, "Any monkey can code".

The only system that matters is the fucking billing system. Doctors can always ask the nurse, "which leg to I chop off?" or "what's wrong with this fucking goombah again?"

Just ask the Chinese or Russian's about viewing your healthcare records. Everything you said or gave to your healthcare providers have been recorded and shared with various data bases. Once on the internet, your records are viewed by anyone in cyberspace, including hackers and thieves from anywhere in the world.

Systems aren't compatible - the only part that is compatible is the part that's submitted to Medicare. So if you want to view a record or an MRI, you have to be on their system.

Sucks.
