Vertical Man

It may be kicking and screaming, and dragged by the hair into the 21st century, but it still is going to happen that even the most reluctant office will eventually use some sort of e-records. From the Channel Insider: "Industry Labors in Anticipation of Health Records Standards"
"If you look at every doctor's office, they have their billing online and in a format like everyone else, but their records are still done largely by hand and kept in those giant vertical cabinets we all know," he said. "HIPAA was supposed to make these things portable."
