I’m always interested in interacting with the readers of this blog. Plus, I like to help people out that email me asking questions. Plus, I’m swamped preparing for HIMSS and putting the finishing touches on my EMR selection e-Book. So, here’s one that I think was more than worthy of a discussion:

I am concerned with some of the specialty medicine aspects of EMR, specifically those of Oncology. Do you think there would be room for discussion of the different types of workflows different types of practices face? I would love some outside views of how different Oncology practices plan to convert their workflows to an electronic form.

I am also interested in learning more about different in-house architectures.

I’d love to hear people’s comments about this as well. You know I think workflow is one of the keys to a successful EMR implementation. So, what type of special workflows have you created to make EMR work for a specific specialty? Has anyone had experience implementing an EMR in oncology? Let’s hear your thoughts.
