Always great to read John Halamka’s view on the latest technology like Google Glass. I think there’s a place for wearable computing in healthcare. Plus, I’m excited that we’re just at the very early stages of its development.

Are the wrong EHR vendors going to die off?

I think it always has made or broken an EHR implementation. It’s not an easy task implementing an EMR. Many underestimate the effort required to do it right.
