What Does SEEDIE Have To Do With Patient Compliance?
First, one needs to know that SEEDIE is the Society for Exorbitantly Expensive and Difficult to Implement EHR’s, an organization that defines itself as “a healthcare IT standards organization that is completely funded and operated by a select group of proprietary electronic health record vendors.”
Further, “Unlike independent, objective, professional organizations created to help medical professionals select and implement interoperable EHR solutions, SEEDIE promotes healthcare IT systems that play well in the sandbox if, and only if, it is in the best interests of a particular vendor.”
SEEDIE also offers levels of certification for vendors that is exclusively fee-based.
