Yet another interesting and cool application for healthcare providers on their iPhones. This application is developed by Allscripts-Mysis Healhcare Solutions. Read more about the product here.

I just wish that the healthcare system here in Kuwait would adopt something similar to this, or by all means, create a “fully” functional EMR system.

An EMR project sponsor, managing director of a major general hospital in Kuwait and a physician, once told me proudly that they “managed to change/customize 90% of the software solution the Ministry of Health bought them”!!! Keep in mind, they were the key people that made the choice in the first place! What an #$@*!  if you ask me … Why would you spend tons of money to buy a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) program if you’re going to customize 90% of it.

Physicians know medicine best, so leave IT for techies who know best in that area. Granted, techies can never perform a surgery on a live human being!! They just don’t have what it takes.

Grow-up “some” physicians in Kuwait! Seriously!!!
