Many people commented about my recent columns describing the EMR vendor wars, green hospitals, and my trip to the ED (I'm fine now and thanks to all the well-wishers). I've decided to excerpt some of the correspondence and post them for this week's column. All letters are welcome. You should include your name, organization, and title. We'll print comments intended for publication as space allows. We also welcome longer essays for our IT Leaders Forum. I'm still getting mail--some of it quite passionate--about last week's "Sicko" review and will compile them for a future edition. Meanwhile, enjoy your summer! And keep those cards and letters coming (electronically of course)!!
