Secure Chat: Ukulele EHR parody to Beatle’s HELP!

Welcome home from Epic UGM 2023. Another action packed few days of hob-nobbing with 15,000 of our best Epic customer friends, and learning about each other’s successes, failures, innovations.

Thanks to my colleagues Heidi Twedt MD and Deepti Pandita for our session on Growing an Informatics Program.

Here are the lyrics:

HELP! Secure Chat (apologies to the Beatles)

[Am]Help! I need a consult

[F]Sage! I cannot tell if you got my

[D]Page! You know I need someone, [G]Help!

When I was younger, I used to carry 5 bell-boys  G Bm

I had to wear an extra belt to handle all my toys.  Em C F G

Pagers phones and VOIP devices pulling down my pants   G Bm

Wishing for a way to connect without hospital intercom blasts. Em C F G

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down   Am

And I do appreciate seeing u on rounds   F

Help me get my pockets off the ground   D

Won’t you please please help me?    G

And now my life has changed, in oh so many ways. G Bm

The weight around my neck has seemed to vanish in the haze. Em C F G

And now those days are gone, I’m much more where it’s at. G Bm

Now I find I’ve changed my mind, I’m loving Secure Chat. Em C F G

I can help you if you’re feeling down. Am

We can quickly answer questions during rounds. F

We’ll send EMOJI’s with the joy we’ve found. D

Won’t you please, please chat me. G
