In case you missed the Super Bowl, the power went out for a good 30-45 minutes. It’s the EMR’s fault. We could create a whole comedy routine blaming a hospital’s problems on the EMR I think.
is video the next EMR frontier – Care Cam Innovations raises 10 million bit.ly/11rhKXv ^ (who has time to watch?)

I’ve talked about video in EMR for about 7 years. The problem is we don’t have a great way to pull the data out of the video. Plus, I’m sure there will be many that resist the idea of a video recording of their patient visits. I still see it happening one day soon. I wonder if HealthSpot will be doing this in their kiosks.
ONC’s heart is in the right place with EHR interoperability (healthit.gov/buzz-blog/elec…) but structured data is too important to be left to EHRs

Who should be creating the structured data standards? I’d like doctors themselves doing it, but they’re too busy (or so most of them say).

I wonder when this spending will stop. At the end of meaningful use?
