This is a pretty interesting idea and another way to talk about subjects we’ve talked about many times here. The idea of an app in this case is an app on top of EMR software. I call this making the Smart EMR. It will likely come from these apps. The article is right that many of the data warehouses are clunky and don’t serve the doctors. In fact, there are very few data warehouses focused on the doctors needs at all.

The last EMR incentive numbers I saw were at $10 billion. Does that mean the government has funded half of the market? These numbers are always a little fishy, but it’s interesting to consider how big the EMR market is.

I actually know a lot of doctors who love their EMR and wouldn’t practice medicine without one. What I think most doctors are tired of is all the government regulations. We shouldn’t confuse government regulations with EMR.
