Skip to comments.Scandal: Wealthy Obama Donor Behind Epic Ebola Fail
Posted on 10/07/2014 9:02:07 PM PDT by Abakumov
A Dallas hospital's bizarre bungle of the first U.S. case of Ebola leaves me wondering: Is someone covering up for a crony billionaire Obama donor and her controversy-plagued, taxpayer-subsidized electronic medical records company?
Last week, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital revealed in a statement that a procedural flaw in its online health records system led to potentially deadly miscommunication between nurses and doctors. The facility sent Ebola victim Thomas Duncan home despite showing signs of the disease -- only to admit him with worse symptoms three days later.
Hospital officials, who came forward "in the interest of transparency," initially cited workflow and information-sharing problems for the botch. ...
Mysteriously, after taking special care to get their facts straight before releasing the statement, the hospital backed off a day later. The very specific communications flaw in the medical records software -- which apparently had prevented some staff from accessing Duncan's travel history from Liberia -- suddenly disappeared.
What really happened?
Here's what I can tell you for sure: Texas Health contracts with Epic Systems for its electronic medical records system -- and the Dallas hospital isn't the only client that has complained about its costly information-sharing flaws and interoperability failures.
Epic was founded by billionaire Judy Faulkner, a top Obama donor whose company is the dominant EMR player in the U.S. health care market.

The Obama stench and the trail of Obamacare, just get bigger. It is not over yet, by a long shot. This STUPID nation had better wake up and get on the Obamacare time bomb.
Man if this is true, there will be HELL to pay.
In July, The Boston Globe reported that there is still no safety oversight of the vendors who sell EMR and EHR systems. One malpractice insurance group revealed that it found 147 cases in which electronic health records contributed to adverse events that affected patients 46 resulted in death.
Didn’t Chewbacca once hold a highly paid sinecure with a hospital?
And didn’t she purport to serve as some kind of figurehead/’Wookie in the window’ liaison with (clearing throat) financially high-risk, lower income patients?
Maybe she could handle deadbeats like Mr. Imnotdeadyet and starve them to death with her healthy diet before they can walk around Chicago/Dallas for days spraying the Ebola virus.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
How much did taxpayers spend on that system?
Epic was founded by billionaire Judy Faulkner, a top Obama donor whose company is the dominant EMR player in the U.S. health care market. As I reported last year, Epic employees donated nearly $1 million to political parties and candidates between 1995 and 2012 82 percent of it to Democrats. The companys Top 10 PAC recipients are all Democratic or leftwing outfits, from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (nearly $230,000) to the DNC Services Corporation (nearly $175,000) and the Americas Families First Action Fund super-PAC ($150,000).
Thanks for the ping-—that was fast !!!!!!
I’ll be anxious to see if the media hops on this information.
There’s an article on politifact tampa bay times bill & melinda gates, george soros funded bio-terrorism labs.
You are becoming popular, soviet. Good.
>> “Man if this is true, there will be HELL to pay.” <<
No, there won’t.
The MSM is incapable of seeing Dumacrap faults.
“Man if this is true, there will be HELL to pay.”
There should be. But there won’t be.
When your opposition is the GOPe there is never anything to worry about.
Obamacare is now Obolacare.
“How much did taxpayers spend on that system?”
GOOD QUESTION! also, it seems like the software is outdated and bug-ridden..How did this person even become a billionaire??? This story needs to go viral! (OK maybe not the best terminology there;)
I never was so sure there was a good reason for electronic medical records...has always made me uneasy.
