How Reliable Are Medical Research?

How Reliable Are Medical Research? Half of Findings Couldn’t Be Replicated: – THURSDAY, Aug. 27, 2015 – – Independent researchers couldn’t reproduce the findings greater than half of 100 experiments previously published in three prominent psychology journals, a fresh review reports . This review should fuel skepticism over scientific claims, particularly if those claims derive from shaky statistics, said among the new study’s authors, Brian Nosek, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia.

So why concentrate on meaningful use than interoperability rather? Some generous explanations: As Blumenthal notes, there can be no interoperability without operability. Patient privacy is certainly another salient concern, given the increasing frequency of cyberattacks especially. Finally, the technical complexity of establishing requirements is challenging. As Koppel explains, something ostensibly simple even, such as for example blood-pressure measurement, can get lost in translation due to the modifiers accompanying the figures: standing, seated, preinjection, labile, noncompliant. So imagine a common language for MRI reports or operative notes. Although sector influence is indisputable, such an description conflicts with the impression I acquired from Judy Faulkner, ceo of EHR maker Epic Systems, who advocates for government-created standards.
