Can you believe summer is over? It’s September and the cool weather of Fall is just around the corner (I hope). Plus, that means health IT conference season is close as well. Why do they have to put all the conferences all together at the same time. I could travel to a health IT conference every single day in October. That’s crazy. I’d prefer just one a month. I wonder who could fix that.
Enough of that. This weekend’s EMR Twitter roundup is a really interesting one that includes a number of images which are really memorable. Plus, I think you’ll even find a little humor in this roundup.

This makes me want to do the same thing with my child. They love drawing and I wonder how they’d draw it. Plus, they’ve been to the doctor enough they could probably do it without my even going in. I wonder if they’d draw the laptop in or not. With that said, this picture will resonate with me for a while. At least the picture was colorful and a nice place for a child.
T1 As we move more and more into EMR/EHRs, we need a good laptop, often a desktop (for more complex stuff); smart phones helpful, too.

I think that’s the order I’ve seen most doctors go when it comes to EMR technology. In the ambulatory environment they usually want a laptop. A desktop in the office for the more in depth work they do in the EMR. Plus, smart phones are still an afterthought. Mostly because most EHR software doesn’t work too well on a smartphone. Even an iPad is so so with EMR software today.

This image gave me a good laugh. I’m sure many doctors get tired of the physician handwriting jokes. Interestingly enough, I’ve never heard of handwriting issues from those using an EHR.
