EMR Profitability, Patient Care Team, and Between EMR and Paper

This is an interesting graph. I’m amazed that the hospitals were willing to give out their operating margin. Of course, some of them are public and so that information is available publicly. It does seem to show a benefit of EMR adoption. Although, I’d also question if those able to adopt EMR were more profitable in the first place. Correlation is not causation.

You have to love Sherry and her passion for the patient involvement in care. Keep on spreading the message Sherry!

I really love The Nerdy Nurse. Not just because she has a cool name (which she does), but also because she writes some great stuff. We need more nurses like her writing about healthcare IT and EMR.
