“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.”
John Gruber’s post elegantly lays out how Apple succeeded with the iPhone utilizing the principle described by Gall.
How should be utilize the same principle in EMR arena? EMRs are horribly complex, poorly engineered, siloed, non interoperable and in general very disruptive to roll out… no single platform deals with the multitude of specialties that exist and the corresponding differences in how each specialty *operates* in the office environment.
Perhaps we need a bare bones deck that can be populated by an EMR Apps store ???
