Change is Good, but Let’s Remember: Innovation Follows Inspiration, Not Technology

Change is Good, but Let’s Remember: Innovation Follows Inspiration, Not Technology

by Michael Fratkin in MedCityNews

“I’m not really a technology guy. My choices in gizmos reflect this… the intuitive Apple computer, Zoom videoconferencing, athenahealth’s EMR, etc… My view of “meaningful use” is very different that that of the Department of Health and Human Services. While they define “meaningful” with a carrot and a stick, I tend to define in relational terms. To me, the amazing technology at our fingertips is only as valuable as its ability to serve and support our relationship to each other and to our collective wellbeing. And most importantly, to the patients we serve.”
