You pay, we benefit

Dana Blankenhorn at ZDNet Healthcare:

Doctors are being told to pay for automation, but the benefits are not going to their own bottom lines. They’re going to insurance companies or hospital groups. Thus those doctors who do automate do so under pressure from such groups.

Let’s not forget pressure from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
