As you read this post, I’m probably on a red eye flight to attend Health 2.0 Boston. I’m really excited to attend Health 2.0 Boston. I think Matthew Holt is always interesting and so I hope I get a chance to interview him while I’m there. Plus, I think it’s large enough to bring out some important people, but not so large that you’re overwhelmed and can’t connect with those who attend.
Also, even if you’re just in Boston and not planning to attend Health 2.0 Boston, we’re going to be doing a tweetup on Tuesday evening. I call it the after party. I’m not sure where we’ll do it, but watch @ehrandhit on Twitter and I’ll tweet out the exact time and location for the tweetup. I look forward to seeing all my Boston Healthcare IT friends.
Now, without further ado, some interesting EMR tweets:

The interesting part of the story linked above is that all of the inaccuracies could happen on paper as well.

Reminds me of the announcement that said that physicians order more labs with EHR. I know we implemented the lab cost display in our EHR, and I’m sure that the cheaper tests were ordered, but that was certainly due to the type of clinic that I implemented the feature.

The idea of the internet as a database is very interesting. It’s probably too forward thinking to be really practical today, but we’ll definitely get there. It’s just a question of how quickly. We’re already seeing indications of this. It’s amazing what you can build in a weekend using “internet parts” through powerful APIs.
