I bet 5 hours is generous for resident EHR training. It’s amazing how training a resident on an EHR is almost an afterthought. I partially understand it since the residents have so many things to learn, but EHR will become a standard part of that training. I live right next to a medical school and it’s amazing to hear the stories of these residents doing rotations at clinics with EHR. Most prefer it, but they don’t get much training.
HIMSS: 4 reasons why the FDA should ease up on EMR regulations http://t.co/bNgUTHeaJ8

Is the FDA regulating EHRs? Other than the guidance they put out recently for health applications, I haven’t seen them do much more as far as regulating EHR software. Although, after seeing this and reading a tweet from Farzad suggesting that the FDA should leave EHR “regulation” to the ONC framework, I wonder if something else is brewing. What have you seen or heard?

I didn’t think this tweet was that significant, but it was the first time I remember seeing MEDITECH participating in social media. In fact, I’m trying to remember where I’ve seen MEDITECH participating in any of the national conversations. For such a large EHR vendor, they sure have kept a low profile. I feel like I get around, and I have yet to meet a MEDITECH person. I can’t say that for many EHR vendors. Of course, I look at their social media account and see they have 1,243 tweets. So, they’ve been doing something, but I’d never seen it until today. Just for reference, I have about 28,000 tweets between just my top 2 Twitter accounts.
