Some IT managers might liken the experience of deploying electronic health record (EHR) software to a 1950s campy B- or C-grade horror movie in the Ed Wood vein. The Indiana Healthcare Information Technology Extension Center (I-HITEC) is fighting back, creating a promotional movie for its services in the classic Plan 9 from Outer Space mode. The I-HITEC film, however, fingers paper — not EHRs — as the monster.
For those who want a little more serious take on meaningful use and ways to use your local regional extension center, the Kentucky REC has a couple of free, informative webinars, which, if you live in the state, qualify for continuing education credits.
Of course, we can’t discuss meaningful use videos without a tip of the cap to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, which updates its ONC video page regularly with all kinds of content — including dispatches from Dr. David Blumenthal himself.
