The pace at work has increased; in addition to a huge number of projects, there are several organization change balls in the air.

I spent most of Tuesday in SOMA, the steering committee for out-patient electronic medical record (EMR). Sutter Health started its EMR projects more than five years ago and now has several foundations that depend entirely on an electronic medical record rather than paper records. Without the availability of the EMR system, these foundations can not function. This creates some real urgency around the technology support and infrastructure issues.

More recently several other major healthcare organizations have started the same type of project using software from the same vendor, including Kaiser and UC Davis Medical Center.
