Uhh…I think it’s more than safe to say that Dr. Webster has a rep when it comes to EMR workflow. Consider this edition of tweets my ode to his passion.

I love that the idea of Smart EHR is spreading. I think it’s a really important one. I’m really intrigued by any new interfaces that incorporate AI. Thinking about the possibilities of what AI can do to a user interface is both scary and exciting. Although, I’m mostly excited.

Makes me wonder how a committee would do with EMR workflow. Innovation does rarely come from committees. This is a really interesting topic since most hospitals are dominated by committees. Are we missing out on a lot of innovation in our hospitals because of this?
