EHR Analogies and Comparisons – Fun Friday

It’s Friday and so we like to have a little more fun here at Healthcare IT Today. This week’s Fun Friday comes from the entertaining (and sometimes brutal) @EpicEMRParody account. If you’re not familiar with the Epic EMR Parody account, it’s an account that highlights many of the funny, ironic, challenging, frustrating, etc things about the Epic EHR. Sure, a few of the tweets might be exaggerated for humor, but man of them are so spot on they hurt a little.

Here were two of them that popped up recently that I found pretty funny.

It’s always fun when the account does a RT of someone else.

I’m a little surprised that the tweet didn’t acknowledge the new trend of recording the audio of your doctor visit. Then, you’ll have all the tone of voice and emotional cues you want (and some you don’t want), but that’s a topic for another day.

Have a great weekend!
