One of the reoccurring learnings I’ve had this year revolves around judging something new against perfection as opposed to comparing something new against the status quo. I see this over and over in the EHR and Healthcare IT world.

Pairing this idea with the idea in the tweet, I wonder if too often we’re found trying to achieve perfection in healthcare that we are afraid to take the journey to perfection.

I’m chewing on this idea this weekend. What are you thinking about this weekend?
