Parkview Epic go live 3/7 #2. The Slopper!

Drs. Holmstrom, Vizena, Rotholz, Scott Carpenter, Drs. Honce, Lin, Simpson, Pell

Our physician informatics go live team, after a day of supporting a 350 bed hospital and dozens of clinics on a new EHR. We are still smiling! The alcohol helps. So does the telling of tall tales.

And so does the Slopper. Apparently the signature food of Pueblo, and we are at the dive bar (Gray’s Coors Tavern) that serves the best Sloppers in town. Buh? Wha? you ask? Think of 2 burger patties on 2 bun halves, drowned in green chili, with cheese and onions on top, sprinkled with soup crackers and fries. ?! ?!? Well, after 12 hours of at-the-elbow support, this hit the spot.

My new quote regarding the ‘bell-curve’ of physician behavior during adoption of a disruptive technology:

The bell curve contains the entire bell curve.

It is an absolute joy to work with this resilient, resourceful, hilarious team, and the IS and IT teams that built this infrastructure over the past year. Let’s go again tomorrow!
