We are living in a wondrous time. Read this WIRED article about how the Weather channel very quietly deployed a brand new imaging technology to very viscerally depict Storm Surge data in a way that WILL GET FOLKS OUT OF THE FLOOD ZONE. Some do not leave because there is a lack of understanding of “how bad will it be, really?” After watching the video above, I don’t think there will be ANY question.

It is a fascinating illustration of how far we are coming with virtual reality, and combining this with real images to create augmented reality.

CMIO’s take: We need this in EHRs and healthcare IT to bring home the visceral impact of our care and our decisionmaking. Who’s in?
