More from the BNET blog

My latest post on the BNET Healthcare Blog went up yesterday. Perhaps I should be posting there more than once or twice a month, since that actually comes with a small payment?

In any case, the piece is about health IT consultant Dr. Sam Bierstock of Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Blues Band fame, and his latest brainchild, the “electronic musical record,” a biting parody of electronic medical records.

A belated thanks

Thanks to Jill Rose, editor of Inside Healthcare, for the shout-out in the May issue. This blog was highlighted in the “Blog Watch” section of the print edition, on page 6. Jill excerpted from my April 7 post on the festering controversy about CCHIT and its relationship to HIMSS. I guess the word “pseudononymous” got some attention, even though I now see the more correct word is “pseudonymous.”
