EMR Twitter Roundup

Always fun to do some searches on Twitter and find some interesting content. In this roundup, we cover a lot of ground starting with a lawsuit that could be the first crack in breaking the damn wide open.

This picture is hilarious for this story. That part aside, I’ll be personally surprised if this case is successful. However, you can be sure that every EHR vendor out there is watching this case careful. It would be a big deal if eCW does lose.

This is a huge problem. However, it’s not a problem with the EHR. In fact, the EHR could be the solution to the problem as it creates a usable clinical display while still satisfying the billing requirements. Even better would be for us to streamline our billing requirements so that EHR vendors didn’t have to produce these thousands of pages of documentation in order to bill and get paid by insurance companies.

We all know about this challenge. In fact, I’ve heard this used as the rationale for why some people used the term EMR instead of EHR. However, more disturbing is that Matthew doesn’t know that you can remove EHR from the autocorrect table in Word and not have that problem. Kind of reminds me of a lot of EHR complaints. EHR users complain about things that have solutions if they just knew how to use the EHR properly.
