Topic Three: In your opinion: Coolest thing coming out of D.C. last week with Datapalooza and the other health IT conferences/meetings?

Topic Four: Congress blaming EHRs & #MeaningfulUse for “upcoding” is like blaming screwdrivers for burglaries. Agree/Disagree/Your take?


Topic Five: Will ICD-10 be a non-problem we blew out of proportion like Y2K, or will it be a pretty rough transition? Explain.
