BIG BROTHER IN THE EXAM ROOM: The Dangerous Truth about Electronic Health Records

Award-Winning Book

** Now Available: 3rd printing, now with INDEX
and revised National Patient ID Section **

There are serious dangers lurking behind the government’s $30 billion electronic health record experiment. This omnipresent technology turns doctors into data clerks and shifts attention from patients to paperwork — while health plans, government agencies, and the health data industry profit. Patients who think the HIPAA “privacy” rule protects the confidentiality of their medical information will be shocked to discover it makes their medical records an open book.

Inside this book, discover:

  • How Congress forced doctors to install a surveillance system in the exam room
  • The impact of EHRs on patient care, costs, patient safety and more, according to doctors and more than 125 studies 
  • How patient treatment decisions are controlled (and tracked) by the EHR
  • What specific steps back to freedom, privacy, and patient safety are available, and why we must act now.
