Far too often we take things that are complicated and make them worse or we take things that are simple and make them complicated. I guess that’s why I loved this list of tech buzzwords that were simplified in a humorous way.
Tech buzzwords explained:
AI- bunch of IF statements
Cloud- Somebody else’s computer
IoT- Internet of Toasters
Big data: Slightly too tedious for MS Excel.
Data science: MS Access.
Algorithm: Probably something about terrorists.

The last 2 kind of fell flat for me, but the AI, Blockchain, and Cloud ones were great. I wonder if there some that could be applied to healthcare.
Patient Engagement – A way to get paid easier
Interoperability – Sharing data with my competitors
HCAPHS – Finally paying you for what you should be doing anyway
I’m sure you can come up with even better ones. I’d love to hear any ones that you come up with in the comments or on social media.
