We are a small group of doctors and IT professionals who want to help clinicians harness the power of modern technology to improve their efficiency and level of patient care. We also want to make it easier for clinicians to get started implementing their own tech ideas.

Stevan and Ed are back to talk about things that belong in their personal Room 101s of Medical IT. The gloves are off in this episode as we look at issues ranging from the patient revolution to fixed-fee contracts and the mighty Internet Explorer.
The Digital Doctor emerges from hibernation to discuss Clinical Wikis - with Wai Keong Wong and Marcus Baw. We discuss the case for using Wikis to manage local knowledge within a clinical environment - like ‘how to order X test’, ‘how to get your IT password set up’, and ‘how to refer to Y speciality…’. We also discuss the technical process of setting up a Wiki, moving from proof-of-concept stage to production, engaging IT staff in the change, capturing clinical enthusiasm and dealing with problems.

Building an Open Source EMR
It's episode 20! In this episode Wai Keong and Ed are joined by US family practitioner and coder Dr. Michael Chen to talk about NOSH - an open-source US EMR. We talk about the inception and creation of an EMR from scratch, built 100% by a doctor who has learnt to code. We also touch on large topics such as Meaningful Use, Medicare, Agile Development in Healthcare It, and the mighty question: Should Doctors Learn to Code? This one is a keeper, and well worth a listen.
