EMRs: A study says they don't save money, either. Of course, if you're a physician practice that takes Medicare, you'll lose money if you don't adopt one. D'ya ever notice whenever the government puts unnatural incentives on some economic action, it results in uneconomic activity (viz. "cash for clunkers")? If EMRs add efficiencies and save medical practices money, medical practices will adopt them. When the government tries to skew the natural economic incentives, you get . . . clunkers (for which you have to spend a lot of taxpayer cash).
