Let’s take a quick trip around the Twittersphere and share some of the best healthcare related tweets we’ve seen recently. Plus, we’ll add a little commentary for each tweet as well. We hope you’ll add your commentary on Twitter with @healthcarescene and in the comments.
Let the backpedaling begin! 4 years after #FHIR standard #API developed, proponents doubt it will bring true #interoperability to healthcare https://t.co/BVZ6OiEMGY #HCLDR #HITsm #HIMSS19 (see my tweets & posts re #PragmaticInteroperability: Workflow Interoperability real issue!) pic.twitter.com/Er5a7wuZ4L

This might be a media back pedal. Everyone I’ve talked to that really understood FHIR has always said that the FHIR standard was not the end all be all interoperability solution. In fact, they specifically noted its limitations. Of course, that didn’t keep many outlets from reporting FHIR as the cure all. Glad to see they’re finally reporting on FHIR accurately. It’s good, but not a cure all interoperability solution.

"I angled the screen toward the couple. Side by side, we confirmed that his medical history was up to date, that the correct surgical site was marked on his body… His shoulders began to relax. His wife’s did, too." – @Atul_Gawande https://t.co/sxXexUnZRW #ptexp #hitsm

I think Aimee underestimates the power of complacency. However, I hope she’s right since long term complacency will feel really bad.
