The Wired Doc Ten Years After
I became the Wired Doc in 2000 at the height of the dot com bubble. Armed with a Newton Message Pad 2000 I was writing about using hand held computers in patient care and the possibility of a hand held electronic prescription pad. That dream has come true with an iphone and my trusty Lenovo X61 tablet and Allscripts Eprescribe. Now ten years and two stock market crashes later my practice is weeks away from installing it's first electronic medical record. I have decided to blog about the experience of it's installation and hopefully it's "meaningful use". Wish me luck.
