Turns out the fish are starting to feed. Check out this website that talks about the “EHR Stimulus Tour: Educating the Nation.” Ok, I don’t really want you to check out the website, since I think it’s kind of sad. At the bottom it lists the “EHR Stimulus Alliance.” The following companies are listed in this EHR alliance:
What a group of large companies trying to sell a bunch of product. I guess we should have expected something like this, but maybe I’m just a little surprised that they made a website for an EHR stimulus tour and everything. Interestingly the twitter link on the site goes to an Allscripts twitter account. I think we can clearly see who’s behind this website.
Honestly, this reminds me of an Amway or other MLM convention. Is it any wonder the type of information that will be given at this type of tour? I guess $18 billion is a lot of motivation to market your EHR software. I just wish they were stopping in Las Vegas so that I could go and check them out.
