  1. Mr. H, why the articles on Epic in UK the past 2 posts? Isn’t that old news from a year ago?

    [From Mr H] Old news that they were selected, new news that the contract was signed, HP was named as the overseer, and the price was given.

  2. Interesting that Hammergren sat on a board for major PC maker, yet his company uses a competitor for all their internal PC’s. How big business amazes me.

  3. Wake Revenue Loss – HIMSSAnalytics shows Wake uses CPSI and McKesson Healthquest as their revenue/billing solutions. Who would have predicted that those applications wouldn’t play well with Epic? (Everyone!)

  4. Do stories like that of Wake’s only come to light when there’s a major associated event like the Moody’s downgrade to push it public? I wonder how many more scenarios (certainly not just Epic) like that are out there.
