Today the following videos came across my Twitter feed and I was interested in video being used to discuss health care IT and in particular the health care IT stimulus package. Props to HealthTechnica for stepping in front of the camera and trying to share some knowledge about health care IT with the world.

The videos are a little long for me. The audio was a little soft too, but not too bad. I would have also liked a short intro of who was at the table speaking. I of course don’t agree with everything they said in these videos and would have liked a little more depth on some subjects, but I do like to point to people doing creative things online with HIT.

Best thing I heard in these videos. “Technology isn’t meant to fix things.” I’ve said this a hundred times when I’ve said, applying an EHR to a poorly run clinic just exposes all the weaknesses of that clinic.
