This is hilarious: angsty flowcharts to help guide readers. Must-read article. Thank you to Fawzy Taylor, whose brainchild this is. Fantastic in so many ways. Why can’t we build our informatics and our internal education this way? For example, for newbie informaticists, how about my book-recs graphic above, based on the same idea? CMIO’s take? … Continue reading “Where do you keep the (informatics) pixie dust? (borrowed from NYTimes)”
Ever wonder what the gig economy is all about? What is the experience of drivers, interacting with restaurants, with traffic, with the AI-in-the-cloud, with customers?

Wonder of wonders, he offered to let me come ride-along for a few hours … Continue reading “Door-dash ride along, a parent’s and informaticist’s view”
A colleague and I were recently making fun of tourists and others riding the city scooters around Seattle and other large cities. Nearly no one was wearing helmets, they’re zipping in and out of traffic, going up against SUV’s and 16 wheelers. Just asking for it.

We talk about EHR optimization, clinician burnout, real-time prescription cost data
clay makes a pot.
Where the pot’s not

What will CT Lin be teaching at the next Informatics Leadership Bootcamp? And, will there be ukulele?
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art via NYTimes: a Japanese Print to teach us about the modern world
Use this to explain to your colleagues that some requests are easy and others might just be impossible.
What does TikTok have to do with Classroom Training? And what is “so last year” with EHR onboarding? And which uke song is up next?
Hear from Drs. Pageler, Hanson, DePuy (and me) about how the CMIO role has evolved and where we think this role is headed.
Congratulations to our own Bonnie Adrian, PhD, with amazing work to reduce the nurse EHR burden. The article highlights the improvements we made in Project Joy.
Funny how after the hard work, the long planning hours, the anxiety about building a robust system for colleagues to use to care for patients, it boils down to this. At least in my world. Recounting our go lives, in our 12-hospital pluse 4-affiliate-hospital system on our Epic EHR instance, this is my 8th hospital … Continue reading “Parkview Epic go live 3/10.
