Where does blogging fit in?






I was thrilled this morning to read Gartner's Wes Rishel, in a private list serve (

AMDIS), making some points that he

elaborates on his public blog. I am deeply indebted to him and several other Gartner analysts for dramatically raising my understanding of many critical issues. Two examples for Gartner subscribers: Wes's tutorial last year (2008) on EMPI, and, an earlier piece, HL7v3 needs a midcourse correction

and here's why.




The specific blog post I'm referring to here is:


Hey, Washington Post, Wake Up!

Any and all CIO reading HCI blogs need to be conversant on this topic. EMRs and HCIT are being inappropriately bloodied. This blog post elaborates the issues, in vintage, beautiful Gartner style.




I've got lots more to share, but I'd prefer you read Wes, come back and comment!







Wes' post connects ARRA-2009's 'Meaningful Use' with the Hype Cycle

And here are a couple of verses by analyst Nick Jones

The optimists buy, when the hype is too high,
While tech’s risky and too immature,
The pessimist waits, until it’s too late,
And the ROI’s totally sure

The sensible man, delays, if he can,
Till the point when the hype cycle turns,
He’s happy, not stressed, because he invests,
At the time that’ll bring best returns
