While I think this is an extraordinary play on words, I don’t think either is a bad thing. In fact, I think both are good things. I don’t believe like some people that robots and AI are going to take over the world. I do think that robots and AI will become quite amazing and in some ways they already have.
Humans have flaws and algorithms have flaws. That’s just the nature of life.
The more I learn and talk about the future of EHR, the more excited I get about the power of technology to make healthcare better. My only sadness is that we haven’t gotten their faster. I want my vision of a smart EHR to become a reality everywhere. The technology is there. We just need to capitalize on it. I’m hopeful that we’ll do so in the next 5 years.
