I thought for a fun Friday post, I would post a bunch of short and sweet quotes and thoughts from people I talked to this last month at various Health IT & EMR conferences I went to around the country. Hopefully some of these will drive some interesting conversations in the comments.

“ACOs facilitate HIE.”

“They [A hospital] had a hard EHR go-live…well, they all have a hard EHR go-live.”

“Not All ICD-10 engines are created equal.”

“EHR consulting firms have a bad name [image].”

“All the money in hospital IT is in clinical apps.”
