Healthcare Waiting Room Cartoon – Fun Friday

It’s late on a Friday and so you know that means it’s time for a Fun Friday blog post. What we do in healthcare is extremely serious, but we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Plus, there’s nothing like a great cartoon to point out the absurdity of some of the things we see happening in healthcare.

This first healthcare cartoon is a sad look at the waiting room, but with a subtle joke about how long health reform takes as well.

I’ll leave the health reform stuff to other people. However, the waiting room issues are something that technology can help alleviate.

This next cartoon says Healthcare, but I think it applies to a lot of healthcare IT as well:

Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend!
