Going through a few medical blogs out there this morning, and while looking over  Texas’ Pediatric Gastroenterologist, Dr. Vartebedian’s great blog,  33 Charts, he mentioned a potential med student wunderkind from Oregon who was doing some startling things.      So,…..

Well, move over David Albert MD, Cameron Powell MD!  We have another doctor/entrepreneur on the horizon!  His name is Roheet Kakaday MD, a first year med student at  Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU) School of Medicine, by way of  a bioengineering degree from University of California, San Diego.

 He has started a very interesting blog in his first year of med school, called, “The Biopsy“.  And, believe it or not, he has begun to tackle a big problem in Digital Healthcare today: the EMR!  He was apparently perplexed when presented with his first Epic EMR, and has set about redesigning it, with a much friendlier interface, an engineering, design issue, not a medical issue.

Here are some screenshots of his proposed design, which seem to make the interface of the EMR very straight-forward, and simple:




Cerner, McKesson, Siemens, Epic, GE, Allscripts, please form a line to the right!
