Technology and Health – Fun Friday

It’s Friday. Time for a break from the minutiae of government regulations and other fun topics like MACRA and MIPS. We’re doing our part to help with physician burnout…or at least that should be the goal of the relatively off topic Fun Friday blog posts we do.

This week we have two cartoons for your viewing pleasure. The first one is one that many of us have experienced. I wonder how much this type of thing really comes up in a doctor’s office (ie. too much social media). I’m sure it’s an issue in mental health.

This second cartoon hits a little close to home as a professional blogger.

For the record, I don’t drink caffeine and I couldn’t be at my computer more than 12-14 hours a day. I also may or may not have an addiction to ultimate frisbee (ie. exercise).

Happy Friday!
