The electronic medical record (EMR) is becoming an intrinsic part of medical practice for managing all aspects of patient care. The EMR captures and presents important clinical information about the patient. Symptoms, physical examination findings, treatment plans, and medication histories can be stored and accessed. Vital information from all departmental systems can be integrated and delivered to clinicians at or close to the point of care. Electronic Medical Records: A Guide for Clinicians and Administrators answers the important questions concerning the selection and implementation of an EMR system. This comprehensive work provides physicians and administrators with a solid understanding of what electronic medical records are and do. Electronic Medical Records answers the many questions that arise when evaluating, purchasing, and using an EMR system. Also included is the latest information on resources, Web sites, services, and vendors.

MAD DOG aka PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD 2020 TRIAL DATE November 11, 2014
Punyamurtula Kishore, M.D. and three other defendants will go on trial in Nov. 11. 2014 for allegedly bilking MassHealth of almost $20 million, in what Coakley’s office calls an “intricate scheme” involving drug testing, sober homes, and his Preventive Medicine Associates (PMA).
According to Coakley, Kishore used various bribes or kickbacks to persuade sober house owners to require residents to submit urine tests at least three times per week. The tests were performed by PMA’s office laboratories, then billed to MassHealth, which pays $100 to $200 for such screens. Also charged in the case were Carl Smith, manager of New Horizon House, John Coughlin, president of Gianna’s House, and Thomas Leonard, part owner and manager of Marshall House—all for receiving kickbacks.
MAD DOG a.k.a Punymurtula Kidhore MD and Lil Dog a.k.a. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. are responsible for the death of Eleanor Clark of Weston , Massachusetts.
Just look at what happen to James Clark .
James Clark was a client at the same address where the Director/Manager Carl Smith resided at ,50 Draper Street in Dorchester MA. Carl Smith is suppose to be a state licensed Mental Health Clinician , If so , than why did he discharge James Clark ? James clark never tested postive for a toxicology screen for illegal or prescription drugs, than why was he discharged ?
He was discharged for behavioral and attitude problems that were related to his psychiatric and substance abuse diagnosis. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. should have been able to detect that this man had psychological problems and referred him for treatment to MAD DOG aka Punyamurtula K…ishore’s Neurological Clinic for treatment and to help James Clark get back on his psychiatric medication. Instead , Carl Smith discharged him and the following day , James Clark murdered his 81 year old grandmother Eleanor Clark in Weston Massachusetts .
Punyamurtula Kishore MD aka MAD DOG Millionaire referred James Clark to Carl Smith’s Program New Horizon House after James Clark was Discharged from St. Elizabeths Hospital’s S.E.C.A.P.’s Detoxification unit. Punyamurtula Kishore aka MAD DOG had a Contract with Carl Smith to provide New Horizon clients with Medical and Mental health Treatment. No treatment was provided except for toxicology screens . Carl Smith collected James Clark’s program fee and MAD DOG Kishore billed his insurance company . Carl Smith and Dr. Kishore donot care about thier clients or patients . The only thing they cared about was making money at the expense of human misery
