I'm about to hit the road for our Microsoft Healthcare Executive Forum in Nashville, TN. I look forward to the opportunity to address a large number of our healthcare customers from the region. The following week, I'll be in Phoenix for a similar event hosted by the local HIMSS chapter and will also be participating in the AMA's 26th Annual Medical Communications Conference. It will be great to catch up with friends and colleagues from my television industry days and the National Association of Medical Communicators; a group I am proud to have helped found more than 20 years ago.
Before I leave town, I wanted to direct my readers to a new article we just posted on the Microsoft Healthcare and Life Sciences web site. I frequently get asked by my physician colleagues for advice on how to select an electronic medical record for their practice. So, I teamed with my friend Mike Urtez and we came up with some helpful guidelines to get you headed in the right direction. You'll find the article here:
We will also be producing an audiocast on how to select an electronic medical record. On that program, I'll be joined by Mike Uretz of the EHR Group and two physicians who are going through the selection process right now. The program will be posted to my House Calls for Healthcare Professionals audiocast series during the month of April.
