Surround yourself with people smarter than you

Lots of lego people

I’m grateful to work with lots of smart people. One of them is Zuzanna Czernik, who is first author on a paper recently published in JAMA. She notes the current despair about how Electronic Health Records (EHRs) take us away from the bedside of the patient. Her surprising investigation reveals that research studies, over the past 60 years, consistently state “residents spend surprisingly little time at the bedside.” I enjoyed co-authoring paper, and helping to find  a light at the end of this tunnel.

Launching a blog

Hello world! Inspired by others (Tosha Kowalski, John Halamka, my famous sister Michelle Lin), I’m taking my first stab at a public blog with musings about Electronic Health Records, Patient Portals, information transparency, life as a CMIO, organizational change, psychology of individuals and organizations, communications strategies, science fiction, little black books, saving the planet, and anything else I find cool or interesting. Navel-gazing in short. I promise to keep it short. Hope you drop in from time to time. CT Lin MD
