Dental EHRs are a Scam?

Electronic dental records are a scam. They have always been a scam.

“Microsoft & Google unable to detect new zero-day ransomware.” By Anthony Spadafora for ITProPortal, February 7, 2018

Spadafora: “The ShurL0ckr ransomware was able to avoid detection by a majority of anti-virus engines and cloud applications. As organisations have adopted cloud services to increase their productivity and agility, so to have hackers who see cloud services as the next big target for distributing malware and stealing sensitive data from businesses and individuals.”

Over a decade ago, I warned the American Dental Association leadership about EHRs’ poor security. So did ADA leadership warn Congress? Oh hell no.

“Patient records will be adequately protected through organizational policies and technical security controls.”Dr. Robert H. Ahlstrom, representing the ADA in testimony before the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) on the benefits of EHRs in dentistry.

Assessment

Conflict of interest caused unaccountable leaders to lie to us, Doc. How does that make you feel?

A CNN Exclusive

(CNN) California’s insurance commissioner has launched an investigation into Aetna after learning a former medical director for the insurer admitted under oath he never looked at patients’ records when deciding whether to approve or deny care.
