Word’s gotten out that the ONC meeting really got down to business and did a bunch of great work today. See this video of Aneesh Chopra and Farzad Mostashari getting down to what looks like maybe the ONC staff doing Ross Martin’s Meaningful Yoose rap.

Note: I tried to embed the video, but that doesn’t seem to be working. So, here’s a link to the video.

All kidding aside, I think it’s great that they did this at the ONC Meeting. Sometimes the people at ONC have to take things far too seriously. It’s like they’re not even human. Here’s a link to see the original Meaningful Yoose rap by Ross Martin.

Puzzled About Meaningful Use? This Hip-Hop Tune Has The Answers

Spent countless hours worrying over meeting Meaningful Use standards?  Dr. HITECH feels your pain. HITECH, otherwise known as Germantown, MD-based Dr. Ross Martin, MD, MHA, has produced an educational video which offers you the highlights — and we’re serious about this — of Stage 1 Meaningful Use requirements.

As you’ll see, however, Dr. Martin isn’t a conventional lecturer. As Dean of The American College of Informatimuscology, he keeps it real with a hip-hop tune dubbed “The Meaningful Yoose Rap.” (By the way, you’re interested in becoming a fellow of the college, Dr. HITECH invites you to submit musical samples.)

Check out the video and tell us what you think.  Personally, I think a little humor never hurts, even when it comes to a serious topic like MU. But hey, some people just don’t know how to have fun…
