Death of an [EHR] Evangelist with Dr Rob Lamberts
Kicking off HIMSS13 with one of the Keynote presenters, Dr. Rob Lamberts aka @Doc_Rob. Lamberts keynoted the Leading from the Future session ‘Landscape of Quality and Cost in Today’s Healthcare Industry‘.
Some of us thought that a primary care physician who recently blogged a post titled ‘Death of an Evangelist’ wherein he details his seemingly terminal frustration with the state of the healthIT market, has been chronicling his transition from a billing and collections primary care practice into the brave new world of ‘direct practice’ or ‘membership medicine.
Doc_Rob was an unlikely candidate to speak at such an august gathering given the Medicare chasis of the ACO program and his recent opting out of Medicare participation in order to shift to his new way of providing care to his patients.
