The three generations of doctors…

“Jay…you are of the generation of doctors I call "tech unconscious.”

– Jeff Goldsmith, former board member of Cerner

 Yes…that’s true Jeff.  I grew up with computers.  My first computer was a Commodore 64.  I went to Washington University for undergrad which was one of the main first hubs of the internet.  Computers, the internet…they’re wired into our brains.  We don’t even have to think about trying to figure out the internet.  We don’t think.  We don’t figure things out.  We just do.

And every time my generation of doctors are asked to use the healthcare IT, we get frustrated because we have to think.  We have to figure things out.

That’s tragic.

But that wrong is being made right.  It’s good times up here in Quebec.
