Community Forum: Health records problems must be solved

Posted on February 25, 2013 |
By Marvin Malek



This week’s writer is Dr. Marvin Malek, MD MPH, who is an internist working at Central Vermont Hospital in Berlin.

The financial problem that occurred recently at Porter Hospital isn’t the first and won’t be the last cost overrun we’ll see in Vermont related to the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). Unfortunately, Angelo Lynn (Addison Independent, Jan. 10) grossly understates the magnitude of the health information technology (HIT) problem in the health sector, dismissing the Porter case as a mere cost mis-estimation.

Posted on February 21, 2013 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Local lawmakers served notice on Monday that they will need to raise revenues and cut some programs in order to draft and pass a responsible fiscal year 2014 state budget.

At a Legislative Breakfast at the American Legion in Middlebury, Rep. Willem Jewett, D-Ripton, said this is the toughest financial year he has seen since being elected to the House 10 years ago. The House majority leader noted the federal government was able to cushion some of the financial blow of the recession through millions of dollars in stimulus funds.

Henry Feb 3 and 4 014.JPG

Eight months ago my husband and I were told a really big secret. You know how hard it is to keep one of those. It was the kind that made us smile a lot, and look at each other with wonder and delight. Yes, you have guessed it, we were going to join the club that I have envied for what seems like years. We were going to be grandparents.

MIDDLEBURY — Perhaps every baby is a miracle, but Danielle Rheaume and Will Wedge felt extra blessed by their first child, born two and a half years ago. After several complications while attempting to conceive, the doctors were unsure it was possible and told Rheaume she may not be able to carry a pregnancy to term.

“That kind of thing is difficult for anyone,” Rheaume recalls, “so when we first found out I was pregnant with Duncan I was so excited and relieved.”

Now, with a toddler at home, Rheaume is pregnant with number two.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite sub-freezing temperatures this time of year, some Vermonters are bundling up extra warmly and making their way to work without the comfort of a heated car.

For myriad reasons that include health and fitness, environmental responsibility, and financial savings, many members of the Addison County community choose to rely on bicycles as their primary form of transportation.

“It’s the way we enjoy getting around,” said Middlebury resident Rebekah Irwin, of her family’s dedication to biking.

Low-income workers helped by tax credit

Posted on February 14, 2013 |
By Addison Independent



VERMONT — The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can make life a little easier for working Vermonters struggling to make ends meet with a credit up to $5,900. In addition, any family with dependent children who receives the Vermont EITC is automatically income eligible for food benefits through 3SquaresVT — meaning their income and resources don’t count. The IRS estimates one in five eligible taxpayers could miss out on this valuable tax credit because they don’t check it out.
