Learning from First Hand EMR Experience

I’ve been really excited about a project I’ve been working on that does interview of various people within the EMR and EHR world. It’s a site appropriately called EHR, EMR and Healthcare IT Interviews.

It’s a new site and so we’re just getting started posting content, but we have a bunch more interviews on the way. We’re trying to make it a great mix of people with first hand experience selecting and implementing an EMR with other leaders in the EMR and EHR industry. For example, I’m putting together some interviews of EHR vendor CEO’s that should be really interesting.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find that one of the best ways for me to learn concepts is to hear other people’s experience. There’s something beautiful about learning from someone else’s work.

For example, there were a lot of great lessons shared in an EMR interview posted today. I found it really interesting that they were already doing 9 of the meaningful use criteria with basically no effort on their part. Plus, they found the ePrescribing to be one of the most challenging requirements. Both are great pieces of information for someone else trying to show meaningful use.

I’ll keep working hard at bringing more and more of these first hand experiences to you. Let me know if there are people you think I should interview. I’m all about finding new people with interesting EHR perspectives.
