It’s been a while since we’ve done a Twitter roundup, so it was time to do one again. This time we highlight 3 recent tweets that will make you go hmmmmm. Lots of great insights from amazing people.

T1: Vendors have a responsibility to make a functional, easy-to-use #EMR. Leadership has a responsibility to provide education and resources to empower #clinicians. Clinicians have a responsibility to be proactive in their EMR experience (e.g. customization). #hcldr #usability
