This includes other Electronic Health Systems (EHRs) that also use MUMPS such as EPIC, MEDITECH, etc.; even England’s NHS uses MUMPS.

Richie, you just reminded me of a great Lily Tomlin quote, "Forgiveness 
is giving up all hope for a better past."

Omnis enabled the careers of many on this list and the people behind it 
made what they thought were the best decisions with the information 
available to them at the time. All I know is that most generals are 
great at fighting the past war. They're not so great at fighting the 
next one. (Maginot Line, anyone?)
