Statistical Bias

This article is yet another example of pervasive proprietary EHR statistical bias.

The linked article excludes an enormous segment: Veterans Affairs VistA, its close cousin IHS RPMS and its increasing number of private sector deployments. There are approximately 1,000 VA outpatient clinics and many more Indian Health Service outpatient clinics as well as more and more private sector deployments. Not counting them or pretending that they don’t exist gives an inaccurate view.
