Good Decisions, EMR Sales, and Patient Data Availability

This is true if the actors are well intentioned. I’ve found that most in healthcare have the right intentions. Although, many don’t have the right data that could help them make better decisions.

I’m going to have to chew on the idea of EMR sales being non-linear. An interesting observation by Chandresh. I’m excited to hear Chandresh share more of his experience with EMR sales at the Health IT Marketing and PR conference.

I’m not sure if this was the exact intent of this tweet, but it reminded me of a discussion I had with some really chronic patients. To a person (and the parents since these were kids), they couldn’t give a rip about privacy. They were more than happy to give up any and all privacy if it would help them find a cure or treatment for their child. This reminds me that context is really important when it comes to privacy.
