    Organizations must show that they are using a certified EHR in a meaningful manner, for electronic exchange of information, and to submit clinical quality measures (these measures are what's still being developed).
    "Quality."
    It rolls off the tongue so easily.
    It's easy to envision.
    It's almost impossible to measure.
    Anybody who claims to measure the quality of medical care should be considered a charlaitan until proven otherwise.
    Anyone who claims to measure it and report the result with one number should be considered a charlaitan.
    And a whore.

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
