It’s been a while since we’ve done a Twitter roundup, so it was time to do one again. This time we highlight 3 recent tweets that will make you go hmmmmm. Lots of great insights from amazing people.

More and more people are open to sharing their records. However, there’s still a lot of education needed for people that are afraid that sharing their records could harm them. While there is that risk, it’s important to remember that not sharing your records could harm you too.

Is this the right balance or resonsibility? Should vendors, leaders, and clinicians all be responsible? Is the reason EMRs aren’t usable is that it takes all 3 of these groups working together to make it usable?

I’ll just leave this one here without comment. Lots to chew on in this image!
