The great people at Extormity have put out another great announcement (embedded below). They’re really taking healthcare interoperability to a new level with their ability to share health records at “distances up to 65 feet.” The satire is terrible since there are still many EHR vendors that can’t share data even that far.

Enjoy the great write up!

Extormity Announces Oh Well Initiative, Plans to Interoperate with Itself

On the heels of the HIMSS conference, electronic health record vendor Extormity today announced that it will begin making its own solutions interoperable as part of what calls its Oh Well effort.

“It has become increasingly clear that interoperability is a buzzword we must pay attention to,” said Extormity CEO Brantley Whittington from a corporate planning retreat in Monaco. “Our attitude is ‘Oh Well’ we clearly have to make a token gesture, so we are planning to make every Extormity application interoperable at distances up to 65 feet.”

“What separates this initiative from other relatively banal announcements we have made in the past is the fact that this level of interoperability will no longer require complex and time-consuming integration,” added Whittington. “The only customer requirement is a sizable check.”

Extormity also announced that it has reserved more than 50 percent of the exhibit space for HIMSS14 in Orlando. “In the past, we have been low key at HIMSS, preferring to host lavish off-site parties,” said Whittington. “Next year, we are doing an about face and we plan to own the conference. As attendees enter our booth, they will find themselves trapped in a maze that is all but impossible to escape without signing an agreement. However, there will be jumbo shrimp, cocktails and constant entertainment by 80’s arena bands with at least one original member.”
