I don’t think Nick was being a cynic with this comment. He’s right. Nothing has pushed EHR vendors to do a good UX and I don’t see that changing any time soon. The #EHRBacklash hasn’t reached a critical mass (yet?). As a side note, I recorded a video chat with Nick Dawson this week as well. He’s a smart man.

Kudos to Flagler Hospital for celebrating their EHR in a fun way for their staff. It’s interesting to see their list of EHR benefits in thew video as well. Although, the dancing is absolutely the best part of the video. Nice work Flagler and a great follow up to your EHR launch video.

I’ll admit that this tweet is quite nostalgic for me. The Medical Quack is one of the first people I met in my online EMR world. I still remember an early Skype video chat we did just after Skype video came out. We were both surprised that it actually worked. It was almost midnight and for some reason we were both up doing EMR related stuff. It was amazing for me to consider one lady on her own trying to develop an EMR. My how far we’ve both come since then. It’s great to see the screenshots from her original EMR. Too bad I didn’t have my EHR screenshots website back then.
