Some really interested EMR related tweets in tonight’s round up from around the EMR twittersphere. I’m testing out the new Twitter embed function. We’ll see how it does. It’s a convenient thing, but might need some tweaking.

As always, feel free to follow me on Twitter @techguy and/or @ehrandhit. If you’re on Twitter, let me know so I can make sure I’m following you as well.

Well said! EMR ROI can’t be certified, but it can be measured and planned for.

I wrote a bit about Steve Jobs and EMR before. The icon of Steve Jobs and creating something the way Steve Jobs did is going to be around for a very long time to come.

Over 10k eligible providers and $1 billion in stimulus money. I wonder how many of those 10k providers already had an EMR and how many implemented an EMR to get the stimulus money.

Definitely much higher than I’d have thought as well. Sure, every doctor wants their systems to be secure, but very few make it any sort of priority beyond expecting it to be secure.
