Welcome to "The Meaningful User"

Welcome. This blog is designed for thought leaders across the healthcare industry to share ideas about how to improve physician adoption of technology.

“What exactly does that mean?” you may ask.

I joined PatientKeeper almost nine years ago with the goal of creating software that would make it easier for physicians to take care of their patients. This blog is a forum for people who share PatientKeeper’s passion for making software work for physicians.

In this blog, we ask physicians and healthcare executives to share what technology is working for physicians, what can work better, and what new technology trends hold promise for the physician community.  We will include contributions from PatientKeeper customers, thought leaders across the healthcare industry and from PatientKeeper’s own staff of physicians.

We are particularly interested in perspectives on physicians’ use of software that are grounded in the day-to-day realities of caring for patients using today’s technology (and the associated issues that physicians face) while looking to tomorrow’s  opportunities to create sustained meaningful use of technology.

I look forward to an ongoing conversation about the various technology-related issues that affect how healthcare is practiced, how physicians are supported, and how communities can improve patient outcomes.

Thanks in advance for joining the conversation.

Let’s get started.
