It's episode 20! In this episode Wai Keong and Ed are joined by US family practitioner and coder Dr. Michael Chen to talk about NOSH - an open-source US EMR. We talk about the inception and creation of an EMR from scratch, built 100% by a doctor who has learnt to code. We also touch on large topics such as Meaningful Use, Medicare, Agile Development in Healthcare It, and the mighty question: Should Doctors Learn to Code? This one is a keeper, and well worth a listen.
