We’re back again with a quick roll around Twitter in a round up of some of the interesting tweets we’ve seen shared. This was quite a diverse set of tweets, so I think there will be something of interest for everyone in this Twitter Round Up.
Here is a list of the providers and hospitals that have made their records available on the iPhone: https://t.co/5g4FbUWnh6 If your provider or hospital is not doing this, demand it! #AppleHealth #EHR #Interoperability

This tweet is a little annoying for me. I know Matthew has the best of intentions, but there’s no way I’d call and ask my provider or hospital to take part in this. I’m an Android user. This type of access does nothing for me. Apple users seem to forget that. Plus, it’s worth mentioning that there are more Android users out there than Apple users. It’s great that Apple is doing this, but it’s not the game changing thing that so many make it out to be.
About 300 people a day are treated in hospital emergency rooms for suspected opioid-related overdoses. Taking on the challenge of this epidemic includes using health information technology and analytics to help fight the battle. https://t.co/tuTW9Vys2L #opioidcrisis #EHR pic.twitter.com/HFe4xStqvq

Numbers like this always take me back. I just have to keep reminding myself that the opioid crisis wasn’t created over night and it won’t be fixed over night either.
Project Solve Skill Session number 2 is in the books. Great ideas – one I loved, to have a real time heat map process to identify areas of patient safety risk in the hospital using an EHR integration! So cool to see what you are all coming up with! pic.twitter.com/sJ0wQd4U1s

Love this type of collaboration and creativity. One of the big things missing in healthcare is getting doctors off the reimbursement treadmill so they can take part in these types of creative activities. Also, a heat map of patient safety risk is pretty interesting to consider.
Athena was once the darling of the EHR market. Their acute care intentions were met with broad excitement. Hospitals wanted to give them their money. We will see how their brand perception shifts after this sale.

No doubt, we’ll hear a lot more about this acquisition in the future. As soon as Jonathan Bush was out as CEO, this company and people’s perception of this company changed. He was the heart and soul of the company and it’s going to be much different going forward. As far as the hospital piece of this tweet. I’ll be really interested to see if private equity is brave enough to continue Jonathan Bush’s ambitious hospital EHR strategy. I won’t be surprised if they pull the plug on it, but time will tell.
