The Most Epic Tweets from Epic UGM 2014
Wearing coveralls, a red flannel shirt, work boots and a John Deere hat, Epic Systems' CEO and founder Judy Faulkner made it clear during a keynote speech Tuesday during the annual Epic Users' Group Meeting (UGM) that the company was sticking to what it knows - developing its Epic Systems software and improving interoperability with other EHR vendors.
While Faulkner's theme-based costumes (this year, "Down on the Farm" was the theme for the annual conference) and Epic's announcements are typical conversation topics on social media, Twitter users attending focused on several other items that they observed during the three-day event. Here's our roundup of the most Epic tweets of Epic UGM 2014.
Folks were digging the Farm motif...

The lunchroom and snacks selections were impressive...
Now this is certainly an incredible lunchroom. Might I suggest turning this in to a beer garden? #EpicUGMpic.twitter.com/10yDJ9ihKE — James Weeks (@jimmyweeks) September 15, 2014

And of course, there were inevitable tweets about the traffic and congestion...
Do you think traffic on the beltline will still be backed up at 10:30, #madison? #ugm14#ugm — Laura Schaefer (@teashopgirl) September 15, 2014
Apparently an extra 10,000 people in Verona, Wisconsin might cause some traffic problems. Good to know. #EpicUGM2014http://t.co/MhE0VJL0i2 — Craig Joseph (@CraigJoseph) September 15, 2014

Attribution is an active process - you must always be improving/updating otherwise docs don't believe data. #EpicUGM — Richard Vaughn MD (@rvaughnmd) September 16, 2014
We are asking docs to move from volume to value. Is operations doing this too? ROI needs to be redefined. #EpicUGM
