How can you not love Dilbert? I once heard Scott Adams speak at a conference and it was spectacular. I laughed the whole time and left with an important message. Neil Versel says he spoke at HIMSS in 2005. I can only imagine what he’d say about Healthcare today.

Oh yes, you probably want to see the Dilbert Digital Health cartoon. I’d put it here, but it seems right to have you click the link and check it out on Meaningful Healthcare IT News since he found it.

I love digital sensors. There’s certainly plenty of FUD around them, but for every bad thing there’s a handful of great benefits.

I hope you enjoy a little weekend humor.

My apologies to all those who work on healthcare standards groups, but I just couldn’t help but share this Dilbert cartoon on standards groups. The laughs aren’t because standards aren’t necessary. The laughs aren’t because standards aren’t extremely important to healthcare. The laugh is because work on a standards group is so hard and far too many of them end up without a standard. At least a standard that’s adopted and if it’s not a adopted, it’s not really a standard in my book.
