  • Looks very interesting, and I thank you for taking the interest in Healthcare Information Technology!

    We've been doing videos on EHRs, at http://www.EHRtv.com for a few months, and I guess you'll be setting the bar a bit higher.  I can't wait to see what you'll be showing.

  • Thanks for writing, Eric.  We will be covering much more than EHRs on Health Tech Today.  You are doing very good work.  Keep it up.
