> Are you getting the picture that this is just too bleeding-edge in some ways?

It isn't bleeding edge. It's alpha quality crap from the 70s.

> Logic such as you have shown is not in play here, for there is literally zero computer expertise on staff and the docs who have adapted are operating in the environment completely without regard to valid data in.

It sounds like nobody bothered to get proper requirements, nor have they really got acceptance testing involving actual doctors.

> In defense of the EMR, it is actually handy once the data is already in there.

True, however you don't have data you can trust, so that's kind of an empty victory.

I've done some snooping - do you use the ICD-9 or ICD-10, and is it the CM variant? I figure that I may be able to write a parser and put together some prototype stuff. Also, is this a web-based tool or no?
