Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

I vote for Option 1. My concern is that the committee is setting its mandate to be broader and broader to the point where it is becoming unfocused.

Re: Ten simple rules of credible practice

I thought I would elaborate on my skepticism re 10 simple rules that I expressed during the meeting today. My notes below were from a prior version so I realize that some of these rules have already been deprecated. Overall I have no strong objection to any of this but find it hard to see that this ...

Electronic Medical Record (EMR) as 'foot in the clinic door'

It was noted in the recent meeting that there are already computers in the clinic -- they are used for EMR primarily and for PubMed search secondarily. Jacob noted in an email to me: "So there are models there already - what is the main obstacle for more models. And you mentioned EMR a point that is...
