This weekend’s thought provoking EMR comment comes from Dr. Gregg Alexander, a grunt in the trenches pediatrician, in a post he did on HIStalk Practice (which seems to be a duplicate from his blog):

“I want a beautiful [EMR] system that works as easily as my iPad and as intelligently as WebOS, one that I can start using as simply as I need and which can then be “apped” silly at my discretion”

I must admit that I LOVED the description of a simple EMR system that could be “apped” silly at his discretion. Makes you think!
