Should older doctors be required to use technology?

from Scott E. Rupp

Dr. Anna Konopka, an 84-year-old doctor from rural New London, New Hampshire, is facing a heartbreaking situation in a changed world. Konopka voluntarily surrendered her medical license in October after the state medical board threatened to suspend it. The reason: She's a throwback to a bygone era. StatNews reports that Konopka "works alone in a cottage next door to her house, with no receptionist, no practice administrator, no nurses, no N.P.s, no P.A.s, no hospital affiliations. She has a computer in her kitchen, but she doesn’t use it much. She keeps her files in a cabinet in her office, page upon handwritten page of careful, old-world lettering. She does not take insurance, instead charging patients $50 cash for each office visit." more
