When EHR Enablement is Like a Fragile House of Cards

I was a kid who loved creating a house of cards. The structures relied on both balance and friction in order to stay upright. Card houses built on a shaky foundation collapsed quickly. The fun, for me, was seeing how tall I could build these structures without collapse. I built my houses with strong foundationsContinue reading “When EHR Enablement is Like a Fragile House of Cards”
