Dr. Nicholas DiNubile, a Philadelphia orthopedic surgeon, has a timely reminder for everyone encountering the federal health-care-exchange meltdown: “If you think signing up for ObamaCare is a nightmare, ask your doctor how the EMR [electronic medical records] mandate is going.”

Instead of concentrating on care, doctors face exhausting regulatory battles over the definition of “meaningful use” of technology, skyrocketing costs and unwarranted Big Brother intrusions on the practice of medicine.
Remember when Wiggleroom said he was going to eliminate waste in healthcare delivery?

The wheels are coming off the clown car, buckaroo. For three more years.
