American Hospital Association survey shows serious problems : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

relevant quote:

"Just 13 percent of hospitals' computer systems and 6 percent of medical devices are currently free of Y2K errors, according to a survey the American Hospital Association released Wednesday."

I looked at the PDF file from the AHA and the above quote is not quite accurate as such. The 6 % is only the equipment that is certified. This does not mean that the rest aren't compliant. The situation is still not good. There is an archive of a health industry Elist. This is from the folks fixing it. Why do people always go to second or third hand info when the real thing is online. To the members of the Health Industry. Good luck. You have my prayers - /data/listserv/digest/1999/
