Not sure if this has been a long week for anyone else, but it’s been a challenging week here for me. So, this Fun Friday cartoon is exactly what I needed to start the weekend.

I should pair this cartoon with the growth in the number of management in healthcare vs doctors over time, but I expect that most of you have seen the chart I’m talking about. Healthcare management positions have exploded in proportion to doctors, nurses, etc. I guess that’s what makes this cartoon even more ironic.

Have a great weekend!

It’s Friday and most of you are watching March Madness instead of working anyway (or you wish you were if you’re not). So, let’s have a little fun this Friday that you can enjoy during commercial breaks.
Cost of Healthcare
This cartoon really hits home after traveling this week. There is a certain irony there.

Patient Advocate
I think this is how it feels for many doctors. However, it gives the wrong impression of the involved and engaged patient. Although, as a husband of a wife who’s found the long list of life threatening illnesses, this hits home. I wonder when we’ll find that balance.

Physician Handwriting - Electronic
As an official #HITNerd, after reading the first line of this cartoon I was getting excited that the doctor was sending the email. Then, I was disappointed for a moment that it was a physician handwriting joke. However, I do love a good physician handwriting joke.

Have a great weekend!
