One of the most entertaining things I’ve seen in the EMR industry in a while (the Meaningful Use rap gives it a run for the money) is the Extormity EHR website. Here’s a couple excerpts from their latest email alert:

“With all the hubbub about SaaS model EMRs, we elected to continue our track record of unexpected innovation and launch a SaSS, or Software as Scented Server, architecture,” stated Extormity CEO Brantley Whittington. “This is more than just a bolted on aromatherapy device, as our SaSS offering is fully integrated with the EHR utilizing a modified HL7 interface.”

According to Whittington, the Extormity SaSS platform will cost $43,900. “As luck would have it, the cost for this is just under the $44,000 available in stimulus funding for physicians who demonstrate meaningful use. Of course, aroma cartridges will be sold separately, and practices will be charged a ‘per whiff’ fee each time a smell is emitted.”

Got to love Extormity. The good news is that they’re “SEEDIE Certified” for all those looking for a certified EHR. They might want to work on their company tagline, “Extormity. Expensive, Exasperating, Exhausting.” lol

If that wasn’t entertaining enough, go and check out some other Extormity EHR news. Although, I will say that Extormity really could use a blog on their site. Would really help them better communicate their message.
