Description

Brain surgeon Allen Wyler has written a thriller on the bleeding edge of new-millennium hospital technology.When a brain surgeon discovers that a revolutionary computerized medical-records system is responsible for a series of patient deaths---and threatens many more---he must navigate a treacherous maze of conspiracy. And risk his life to expose it.* A comatose man is given a fatal dose of insulin in the Emergency Room---even though he isn't diabetic.* An ulcer patient dies of hemolytic shock after receiving a transfusion---of the wrong blood type.* A recovering heart patient receives a double dose of the same medication---triggering a fatal cardiac arrest.When the doctors and nurses at Seattle's prestigious Maynard Medical Center start making preventable drug and treatment errors that kill their patients, neurosurgeon Dr. Tyler Mathews suspects that something is murderously wrong with the hospital's highly touted new "Med-InDx" electronic medical record. But when he airs his concerns to the hospital's upper management, he's met with stonewalling, skepticism---and threats.Millions of dollars, and the future of Med-InDx, are at stake. And powerful corporate forces aren't about to let their potential profits evaporate. Tyler soon finds that his career, his marriage, and his very life are in jeopardy---along with the lives of countless innocent patients.show more
