I’ve always been interested in the United States Olympic Committee’s choice of GE as their EHR software. As part of the Olympics, GE put out this video where a bunch of the USOC support staff talk about how they use the GE Centricity Practice Solutions EHR with olympic athletes. Pretty cool to hear about some of the stuff they’re doing and the unique challenges they face as the doctors of these athletes.

My favorite part of the video is that they’re able to use the EHR to coordinate care of the athletes across 1000 doctors. Shows you that if there’s a desire to do so, it’s possible. Also, pretty interesting that they note that they take 45 minutes to get someone up to speed on the Centricity EHR.
