EHR Systems Should Be Taking Larger Strides, But Aren’t

“When your child takes that first step, wild excitement ensues. The phone lines light up. You spread the news to the grandparents, aunts, and uncles. It makes no difference that they fall after the second step, the milestone is noteworthy. A similar phenomenon occurs the first time many people succeed in doing something with a computer.
Whatever was accomplished takes on magical properties and many feel an irresistible urge to spread the good word; they proselytize others to join their cult of their newly embraced computer/software belief system. Neither the computer nor the hardware can do any wrong. It can crash, freeze, loose work, consume hours of you time as you apply updates, and reboot and reboot yet again. All is forgiven. Your willingness to glory in a stumbling child or and unreliable computer system does not alter the fact that the child is not ready to walk on their own or that the computer is not ready for mission-critical applications.”
