Willy Wonka and the Medical Software Factory

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is well into its Connect Care journey. Part of the adventure involves getting to know, and closely collaborate with, an extraordinary medical software company. Of course collaboration not always easy, but there is no doubt that our partnership with Epic long ago merited sharing the "we" pronoun.

The New York Times recently ran a piece about Epic, its philosophy, leadership and campus. Worth a quick read for some insights to our technology partner's personality.

The comments are worth a quick skim (don flak jacket first) to gauge US backlash against electronic health records. "We" need to do better.
