Epic References and The Winning EHR Solution

I think that Jonathan Bush has started a trend in the EHR world where people now abuse use of the adjective epic. In some ways it’s similar to the way that the word “meaningful” has now been corrupted for all of us in the EHR world. Here’s a couple tweets that show examples of the word Epic being used in interesting ways.

And another example from ePatient Dave:

There goes the word epic in my vocabulary.

I know a lot of people differentiate EHR from PM. I think they’re slowly growing into one software system. The winning EHR will have to deal with both. I wonder what else it will have to do. I’m certain that basic EHR and PM won’t be enough.
