1st HIMSS Stage 7 Ambulatory EMR, EMR vs EHR, Tech and Improved Patient Care


And every ambulatory doctor said, “Who cares?” Then they heard the answer, “Your new boss, the hospital CIO.”


It only cost the government a $36 billion program to make it happen. I still prefer the term EMR, but it basically doesn’t matter to me now. I use them interchangeably (as you might have noticed).


I love The Nerdy Nurse. Great lady (check out her blog). I do have to say that the tech can separate us. Depends on how it’s implemented. Luckily, I know the Nerdy Nurse is great at understanding the needs of nurses in an implementation. So, maybe that’s why she sees it as improving patient care and not separating us.
