Leave it to Matthew Holt to bring the global Health IT perspective. We need someone to really take the international health IT coverage by the horn. There’s so much happening around the world and I don’t think we hear about most of it here in the US. So much is happening with tech in Brazil, that it doesn’t surprise me that they’re doing work in health IT as well.

This poll was created as part of my ICD-10 Tuesdays series. Please participate in the poll so we can get as much info as possible. Based on the current poll results it looks like people have really mixed feelings on whether their EHR vendor will be ready.
Staring @ a 20" flat panel & the login screen of a $100M+ EMR system. As the doc writes a paper Rx. Pretty sure I hear Ada Lovelace weeping.

Paper is such a challenging competitor in so many ways. You’d think $100 million would buy you something better though.
