About the Author

Lawrence L. Weed is a physician who, more than 50 years ago, originated influential standards for organizing medical records. He applied these standards (known as the problem-oriented medical record) in designing electronic record systems. He subsequently developed software tools for applying medical knowledge to patient data. His son Lincoln practiced employee benefits law in Washington, D.C. for 26 years and now specializes in health privacy at a consulting firm.

It was gratifying to read this book which is a pointed indictment of the current state of paper based and computer based medical records. Despite a full generation of physicians that have been exposed to the POMR and many EMR programs that espouse the use of the SOAP format and Problem Lists it was good to see such a detailed critique of current practices. Having worked in this field for over 30 years it is clear to me that in a computer based medical records system having a highly functional Problem List is of central importance. Hopefully this book will provide readers with a better understanding of these issues.

I adopted dr Weed's approach to the Medical record in the mid 70's. I had been a city planner for 7 years, and then entered a program to train as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Yale. My job in NYC was the development of computerization of the draft capital budget along with the imput of the areas citizens. I combined this with Dr Weed's medical record approach (which is now used universally), his insistence of the necesssity of computerization, and the announcement of the "Apple 2". Bingo! My thesis was entitled "computer assisted aid in well child care." , where I developed an EMR and "proved" that Dr Weed's approach was correct. We are still struggling to go down this street. Dr. Topol is saying the same thing in slightly different language. Hopefully, we will wake up to this reality in time.

from the chicanery of modern socialized meicine.
He is systematic, learned, literate, concise.
A perfect book to go to the medical guillotine with.

This book is filled with absolutely awful thought and sentence structure. I wanted this book to be good, but it is definitely not.

This book is so poorly written that individual sentences, let alone paragraphs or chapters, cannot be understood or comprehended without the re-re-re-reeading usually required of a philosophy text.

The ideas behind the book offered promise, but the grammar and sentence structure are horrific. I read 100 random sentence sand paragraphs looking for just one that I could understand on one reading. No such luck.

If you do not believe me, please use the "look inside" feature on Amazon and then try to read and understand any sentence or paragraph.

Sorry, but I recommend you do not buy this book.

Dr Weed has pointed to the central problem in medicine for close to half a century now, and, frankly, nothing has changed. The unwillingness, or incapacity, of doctors and implementers of software for medicine, to understand and act on this message, is breathtaking. To understand what the issues are, I'd recommend watching Dr Weed's lecture from 1971 (search for "Weed", "Internal medicine", "lecture" on youtube), then proceed to reading this book.
