Another week has passed and we’re back with some of the interested EMR and Health IT related tweets this week. Tomorrow I’m flying to AHIMA in Chicago. It’s setting up to be a really great event that should produce some really interesting content. More on that in future posts. Plus, I’m bringing a camera with me and hoping to get a lot of the people I talk with on video.
Now on to the EMR tweets!

Most doctors cringe at even the thought EMR and social media in the same sentence. This is a huge barrier for any EMR to integrate with social media sites. Although, I agree with Dr. Sevilla that it’s going to happen some day.

This article was pretty terrible and felt like the journalist was trying to sell DrChrono. Who knows, maybe the were. Although, the headline and their conclusion is pretty insane. Their logic in the article is that because a large percentage (62%) of physicians use a tablet for professional uses, then it’s the perfect solution for EMR. Talk about a stretch. Maybe the tablet will eventually become the EMR device of choice, but it hasn’t happened yet. It’s fine for consuming content, but not so good at entering data.

Compassion in healthcare. What a beautiful concept. I agree we need to make sure that technology doesn’t get in the way of the many many compassionate people in healthcare.
