A Moment to Say Thank You

It’s been a strange year, and, for many of us, one of the hardest in known memory. We’ve had to sacrifice in every possible domain of our lives – our work, our freedoms, and our health.

But perhaps no one has had to sacrifice more than the healthcare workers who, when called upon to keep us safe, rose unflinchingly to the challenge.

It’s because of them, and you, that we can see a light at the end of the tunnel, that we have managed the miracle of developing an effective vaccine in an impossible timeframe, and that we will find a way back to normal.

Startups are rushing to the market, both disrupting existing products — our EMR could definitely be considered a disruptive technology — and reifying existing problems e.g. digital EMRs that help doctors navigate exponentially crippling ICD-10 codes.
