I usually don’t like to do two funny posts in a row (see the Meaningful Use Rap that Katherine posted), but I couldn’t resist. When I saw this it was too funny. I also considered whether it was ok for a very serious blog like EMR and EHR to post about Pee. Although, I figured this is healthcare where most are more familiar with pee than the rest of the world. Even though I’ll never forget the labor nurse with my first child calling it “she she.” We still call it that in our home.

Regardless, if you’re looking for a way to explain all the various social media platforms, here’s an interesting way to look at it (Source: vanished-omen):

I find it interesting that I was sent another EMR YouTube video. No doubt YouTube can be a great tool for getting the word out, but so far the views on EMR videos are pretty low. However, I must admit that this video by GE Healthcare is much more interesting than the previous meaningful use video I posted. Plus, they focus on physicians number 1 concern: productivity and reimbursement. Take a look for yourself.

We’re getting more and more meaningful use details each day. No one should say that there isn’t a lot of information out there about meaningful use. Yet, I’m guessing there are still a LOT of physicians who still know little about meaningful use. McKesson’s even created this YouTube video explaining the Meaningful Use Final Rule. I can think of a few million YouTube videos I’d rather watch, but if you prefer video to reading, this video does give a general overview of many of the meaningful use final rule details:

UPDATE: Check out another meaningful use video that is definitely more exciting than the previous video (albeit with a little less content). However, it’s under 3 minutes and has music to keep it light and interesting. Thanks for sharing it Michelle. Although, I do wish I could embed the video on here.
