New isn’t always better
Before we throw the “baby out with the bath water,” maybe we should have a very good idea as to the development cost and the maintenance cost going forward (“VA’s overhaul of VistA could cost billions,” Health IT Strategist, May 11).
I believe the current system is responsible for significant “sick care” delivery savings, and it has the potential to support “well care” programs. It would be important to know if previous savings would continue or diminish over time. Having something new isn’t always better. Sabatini Monatesti
