Matthew Holt of the healthcare blog always does a nice job with his interviews. This is a pretty interesting one with Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts. Like it or not, Allscripts is going to play a big part in the EMR/EHR space. So, it’s worth listening to Glen to hear what he has to say about the industry.

One part that I found especially interesting was when he calls out Epic for not working on EMR interoperability. What’s interesting is that Glen really did look sincere in his desire for Allscripts to be inter operable. The problem is that I haven’t seen enough action in implementing those solutions.

Lots of other goodies in the video as well. Nice work Matthew.
