As I’ve noted recently, this Thursday I’m on a stakeholder panel at a meeting of the Adoption/Certification Workgroup, which is part of the Federal Health IT Policy Committee.

As noted in my previous post, this is a busy day, and each of us gets only 5-7 minutes to speak, followed by Q&A. We submit our testimony in advance. Below is mine. Additional reference material:

  • Panelist questions here
  • Rob Koppel’s March 2009 JAMA article here
  • RealPlayer webcast recording Koppel’s December lecture about the article here
  • I was alarmed by what I learned in that webcast, and wrote about it here
