Epic link: LinkEHR piggybacks on Epic's success

The phenomenal growth of Epic in Verona is hardly occurring in a vacuum, and now at least one company is looking to capitalize on its success. Jasmin Patel, 39, a former Epic employee from the old Tokay Boulevard days, launched LinkEHR earlier this year, and although he lives in Southern California, he’s hired Jill Gennerman, 40, to lead the company’s Madison operations.

Has IT made patient privacy a thing of the past?

Has IT made patient privacy a thing of the past?

Scott McNealy, former CEO of Sun Microsystems, might have sounded the alarm years ago when, in an article in Wired magazine, he called consumer privacy issues a “red herring” and advised us to get over the fact that we had “zero privacy.” His remarks got a lot of attention and were soon dismissed as the not-so-secret desire of an out-of-touch technology executive.

After Obamacare pay-or-play delay, questions linger

After Obamacare pay-or-play delay, questions linger

The Affordable Care Act has been a political football since it weaved (critics might say “snaked”) its way through the legislative process more than three years ago. Now, a major part of that law — the employer mandate — has been punted down the road until 2015. Just before the Fourth of July holiday, the Obama administration dropped a bombshell, delaying the Affordable Care Act’s so-called pay-or-play provision, which had originally been slated to go into effect beginning in 2014, until Jan. 1, 2015.
