I take exception to your article about the year-2000 computer glitch ("See you in court: Damage inflicted by the Y2K bug threatens to become a dream for litigators but a nightmare for healthcare executives," Nov. 16, 1998, p. 26). A number of healthcare organizations have the Y2K issue under control. In fact, some started working years ago on this problem.
Several of us are ahead of similar-sized, or larger, organizations in other industries. Perhaps you should look at how well some healthcare organizations have managed this challenge and print a more balanced view.
