Re: So a dilemma.
"For routine medicine you can always wait a couple of seconds, and in most emergency cases you *treat what you see in front of you* not what some computer says."
"A couple of seconds"? More like "Server down today, try again tomorrow." Need to look at an X-ray or some blood tests? Better just "treat what you see in front of you." Do most of the IT boondoggles I deal with increase the risk of death? Probably not. Increased risk of serious harm through delays in correct treatment, plus more pain and distress for the patient? Oh yes.
