VistA and Chuck Hagel on Daily Show again

Published by at 8:28 am under AHLTA,VistA

Jon Stewart talked about VistA again on the Daily Show on Apr 4.  He also talked about Chuck Hagel and the original VistA system, which I first noted in this blog entry.

Unfortunately, he missed the whole part about the success of the Underground Railroad, and how it lead to software innovations that triggered improved health care throughout the VA.

Wake Up, Jon….. there’s lot’s of rocks to be thrown at bureaucracies, but here is a great story of something that worked, but it’s being hidden behind what’s failing.  We have a success story to talk about – let’s use that to improve the situation.
