MU Stats, “Cadillac” EMR, EHR Patent, and Big Data

Some really interesting stats for meaningful use. I think I’d seen most of them in one place or another, but it was great to see them all in once place. Nice work Fred.

Cadillac of EHR. Very interesting.

This is really annoying for me. I haven’t written much on these blogs about why I don’t like software patents, but I’ll have to in the future. You can also read this piece by Anne Zieger about mHealth patents. Software patents are such terrible innovation inhibitors which is ironic since it’s the opposite of what they were designed to accomplish.

I can’t wait until this convergence is normal. It will usher in the start of Smart EMR.
