Re: Commercial software is not all that
This case study definitely shows there's room for individuals and custom coders to create exactly 'what the doctor ordered' (sorry!), when it comes to EHR (or any other type of software, for that matter). Of course, not every practice has the interest, basic knowledge, or resources to dedicate to developing their own EHR software. It is, however, a cautionary tale for commercial vendors that they're not meeting every doctors' needs.

Commercial software is not all that
All of which irrevocably demonstrate that mainstream commercial vendor software (and each redundant module) is not developed for matters of practicality in a biz such as the above referenced surgeon's as much as it is coded to make dollars and lots of them. Oorah for Dr. Hey for having the chutzpah and sense of patient advocacy for building his own.
