This is an important nuance. Although, I’d argue that the biggest challenge to EMR usability is onerous billing requirements and prescriptive meaningful use requirements.


I’m really interested in the description of a post EMR world. It makes me ask myself the question, “What can we do with 100% EMR implementation?”


MU has spurred EHR adoption. No arguments there. Hard to argue against MU killing much of the EHR innovation and usability. We’ll see which exceptions emerge from the dust.
