From Insider: “Re: David Muntz from ONC. Will join GetWellNetwork’s leadership team.” Unverified.

From The PACS Designer: “Re: iOS7. Now that the hoopla has subsided over the 5C/5S, thought it would be good to reveal what are the improvements that Apple brings us with iOS7. They say, ‘It has a new structure, applied across the whole system, that brings clarity to the entire experience. The interface is purposely unobtrusive. Conspicuous ornamentation has been stripped away. Unnecessary bars and buttons have been removed. And in taking away design elements that don’t add value, suddenly there’s greater focus on what matters most: your content.’ Other features are improved graphics, audio, and many other areas to numerous to mention here. With Apple’s acquisition of Cue, a personal assistance app, the solution will surely find is way into iOS7 healthcare communications software.”

From THB: “Re: Northwestern Memorial in Chicago. Leaving the Cerner fold and going to Epic, but I don’t see it mentioned in searching your site. Am I missing something? It’s been going on for the last several months, so is this a big secret, or is it hiding in plain sight?” I ran a reader’s rumor about the switch a year ago, and another reader’s rumor before that.

Most poll respondents don’t see customers of either Vitera or Greenway benefitting from their single ownership. New poll to your right (which is actually an earlier poll that few saw since it wasn’t the featured poll): how will hospitals handle liability and workers comp insurers that won’t accept ICD-10 data until 2015?

  1. The mobile version refers to “the new poll at the right” but there’s no way to get to the poll and fill it out on smartphone – or if there is I’ve never been able to figure it out. Have been meaning to mention this for months.

  2. You meet many people in our industry with intellectual dynamism. Then, you find those special ones who combine their inspiring wisdom with a passionate soul. And, they simply make us all better. David Muntz is one of those people, and we are humbled and excited to have him join GetWellNetwork as we continue our path to transform care through patient engagement. Best is ahead, Michael
