EMR Mandate Delay, Patient Focused EMR, and Guaranteed EHR Benefit

This article makes some interesting points about the challenge of EMR. However, I don’t think there’s any shot that the EHR train is going to slow down. At the best there might be a delay in meaningful use stage 2. Although, that could be unlikely as well. P.S. There is no EMR Mandate.

Not true. It takes GREAT EMR design to do that. The regulations are just brutal and don’t focus on the patient.

It’s always beautiful for me to find someone tweeting a blog post I created 4 years earlier. The content is still quite good. Reminds me that I need to finish my EHR Benefits series.
