I think this is true for all EMR software, but particularly so for Epic. It’s always amazing how many skimp on EMR training and then pay the price for it later.

It’s a little hard to see, but illustrates the challenge associated with connecting these external data devices. It’s going to take a while for this to be commonplace and normal. I do find it interesting that they’re using Direct and the hardest interface to build (sending info to the EHR) is “Out of Pilot Scope.” I guess they don’t want to take on the hard stuff in the pilot.
These next 2 tweets are a little self serving since they point to posts on my EMR and HIPAA site. If you’re not subscribed to that site, you should go and do that now. Plus, one of these tweets is about a party at HIMSS, so I don’t imagine I’ll get any complaints there.

I hope to see many of you at HIMSS 2014!

I appreciate Dr. Webster recognizing this as a good one. While I’m biased, I think it’s a really important topic that needs more discussion. Although, I’m pretty sure it won’t be getting me an invite to any ONC dinner parties.
