I’ve doing more reading on EMR and the likes since I finished a business plan I was writing. Here’s a few articles/blog posts that I found interesting:

Face Authentication Software
The Healthcare IT Guy posted an interesting review of some auto-recognition and auto-login system for healthcare workstations called FastAccess by Sensible Vision. A standard web cam, easily installed software that can recognize my face to log me in. I need to get me a demo so I can try it out.

US Healthcare System
This is a nice article saying that although the media describes the US Healthcare system as broken down, many “better” healthcare systems aren’t immune to problems.

Mirth Project
I really like the idea of an open source project that supports HL7 messaging. I just can’t get my head around what exactly this means and how they are making the wretched HL7 messaging any easier.
