Proceed with caution, 40% of grade ahead

What I don't understand about the economics class is why has it been split in two, Micro and Macro, both five weeks. It makes no sense, there is not enough material to be covered in the five weeks, especially when it comes to grading.

We've been reduced to:
20% participation (common who doesn't get full grade in that in post-graduate school)
20% home work
20% a small in class economic review
40% final presentation

The presentation is suppose to cover an economics of an industry. Between the members of my group we have Foods(Kraft), Electronic Home Installations(used to be Baumaster), Pharma(Taked), and Health Information Services(Allscripts, me).

We've decided to go with HIS, being exited about the $20 Billion in the stimulus package reserved for furthering that purpose only.

It's starnge to discover some of the information. While our bosses are painting everything with Unicorns farting rainbows, it seems that all is not well in Paradise.

For example, the industry is very fragmented. There are six players with market caps over a billion. The rest drops off with barely hitting $100 million mark, and there are a lot them. With these numbers there is very very very little interoperability and descent standards available. Which means, once you get into using EHR system, you are grandfathered in it for the rest of your natural life.

The standartization of industry is very young, less than three years, and rules are extremely complicated, so the entry to up the competition is fairly hard, especially if you don't have a lot of investment capital.

Anyways, the strangest thing is that there is a lot of information about the industry, but not a lot of information about the numbers of the industry, it's all hidden from the eyes of the public.

But, I believe we have scrapped together enough information for a good presentation.

That's it for today, there's a meme going around of which I may partake. I like it so far, but according to my profile as a Sociopath i am way to arrogant to jump on the bandwagon after it left, if conflicts with my sense of Superiority.
