How do I invest?

Here is a new, groundbreaking EHR vendor with an amazing website.  It offers the most honest presentation in the industry.  I'm sure it will do well, and I write this post as I wait on hold with the VC people to learn how to invest.


At the confluence of extortion and conformity lies Extormity, the electronic health records mega-corporation dedicated to offering highly proprietary, difficult to customize and prohibitively expensive healthcare IT solutions. Our flagship product, the Extormity EMR Software Suite, was recently voted “Most Complex” by readers of a leading healthcare industry publication.

The Extormity EMR software suite requires wholesale, revolutionary workflow change that dramatically impacts practice patterns. Our slow and painful change process significantly interrupts patient volumes and revenues, and this cumbersome transformation can only be appreciated in hindsight and with the aid of prescription medication (which can be prescribed via the Extormity EMRX Upgrade Module and Pharmacy Interface Pack).

Under the Extormity Uptime Guarantee section, we see:

** This section of the site is experiencing technical difficulty. Please check back in 30 days…better make that 45 days, just to be safe.**

It's a sad state of affairs that we're still in this situation for health care systems.

I was on the analytics side of an EHR implementation and saw how the data model is what sells, because you can easily and efficiently implement it and get all these pretty bar charts on the other side *so say the sales reps* and the docs eat it up. It only works well if it used in the one way they built it to operate and that way only. There seems to be too much emphasis on us and only us, rather than best of breed style engineering in the various systems.

Data input, extraction, manipulation, analysis, all the things that make moving EHRs into an electronic format appealing are entirely lost where so much duct tape and too many paper clips are used to bootstrap the thing up month over month to meet the basic needs. Whatever you were supposed to gain by implementing it is lost in operational overhead.
