Should the EHR be blamed? After a Texas hospital let Liberian Thomas Duncan go home (with Ebola), hospital officials blamed the electronic health record (EHR). A day later, they retracted their statement -- without explanation.
The Obama administration needs you to believe a lie. They have already spent nearly $25 billion of the $36 million in taxpayer dollars allotted to move Americans from the security of paper medical records to the insecurity and government surveillance and intrusions of interoperable electronic health records (EHRs).
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom’s Twila Brase Says New Bill Will Give Feds Even More Control over Health Care
ST. PAUL, Minn.—A new bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that will give the government even more control over Americans’ private data and medical decisions.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are the foundation of Obamacare. The 2009 HITECH Act (part of the Recovery Act, or ARRA) mandated government-certified interoperable EHRs and provided up to $36.5 billion to subsidize the cost of initial computerization. Already $24.8 million has been spent.
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Earlier this summer, government health IT coordinators announced the formation of a 10-year electronic health records (EHR) interoperability plan that will allow even more government agencies access to Americans’ private medical data—all in the name of better patient care.
Government wants doctors paid for “value.” On July 1, Politico held a briefing called “Value vs. Volume.” Data-crunchers, in cahoots with government, say access to our private medical data can be used to pay doctors for “value,” instead of for the services they provide to patients.
There’s triple trouble with electronic health records: patient safety, medical privacy, and data security. And there are at least eight hazards. But much taxpayer money has been thrown at the highly speculative, untested EHR for political and profit purposes.
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom Says Far from Preventing Fraud, Health Care System is Contributing to It

ST. PAUL, Minn.—The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on Tuesday on the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Reauthorization Act of 2014 (H.R.1281), which would extend for five years the funding program that allows states to collect and store newborn DNA without parental consent.
