Today, someone who calls themselves HIT Sprite sent me a cartoon that looks at ONC dealing with the recently announced departure of Farzad Mostashari. You might not get the cartoon if you don’t know Farzad and ONC well, but for those who live, eat, breathe and sleep health IT, I think you’ll enjoy it.

While not completely accurate, Farzad’s quirks have grown almost as large as his efforts to change healthcare. Will Farzad be better remembered for his bowtie or his work to move healthcare IT forward?
