Time once again for our roundup of interesting tweets from around the EMR twittersphere. We really go around the world with one of these tweets. Hopefully you find them useful and interesting.
I don’t think most of you know that I’m also working on a redesign of my websites. It’s still got a little ways to go, but I think it’s coming together nicely. It’s going to add some features I’ve wanted for a while and make the design look a lot better. I’ve had the current design for more than 6 years, so it was time. One of the best features of the new website is Twitter embeds. I can’t wait!
Without further ado, a few EMR and health IT tweets with some of my own commentary:

I always love when people talk about the huge EMR security risk. When you look at the breach list and the healthcare data security issues, EMR barely shows up. There are so many other security issues with medical practices that are much more vulnerable. Not that we should give EMR security a pass, but EMR security is likely one of the most secure things in a medical office. So, this is good advice.

I always love to hear how the military uses EMR. They use EMR in some of the most challenging places imaginable. I think we can learn a lot from their experiences.

I think this is a really interesting contest by ONC. I’m looking forward to see more of the videos that are created. My fear is that most of the videos will be EHR companies that push their power EMR users to make something. We’ll see how it turns out.
