A few days ago, I took a few moments and attended a Greenway presentation on the EMR stimulus money. They did a pretty good job on most aspects of the EMR stimulus money. For someone who didn’t know anything about ARRA, it would have been a decent start. Only a few comments that had a nice EMR vendor bias.

One thing that did kind of bother me was the list of EMR resources that they listed to help people searching for an EMR. Here’s the list of sites they suggested:
cchit.org
klasresearch.com
ihe.net
mgma.com
himssehra.org
ehrdecisions.com

Interestingly, I don’t think any of the above sites would make my list of great EMR resources. I think I might have to do a future post with my list of resources. Sure, I know that Greenway is a large EMR vendor with a certain agenda. Maybe I’m just offended since I wasn’t on the list (my own personal agenda). It’s just unfortunate with so many good EMR resources out there that the above websites were the ones listed. I mention Greenway, since they provided this list. No doubt many other of the large EMR vendors would have provided a similar biased list.

Feel free to provide your list of great EMR resources in the comments.
