Regarding Computers reduce odds of in-hospital deaths: study:
The article implies that computerizing records will reduce mortality and costs, but while the article does show some correlation, it does not show causation. In just may be that mortality goes down because hospitals that can afford to computerize their records can also afford to pay to have the best doctors and have the newest operating-room equipment. Show causation next time, please.
