I was delighted to present a webinar about my experiences in the design of VistA: “What Worked, and How do we do more of it?” Here is a recording of the session. Thanks to the VistA Extensions Network and Fabian Lopez for hosting it, and Open Health News for announcing it.
I think that it is really critical to take a hard look at lessons learned over the years. Not as an absolute guide to the future, but at least as a guide for understanding the present.
I’m not trying to be nostalgic, but rather convey a sense of the decisions we made back then, and why. And, maybe, keep future designers from making the same mistakes.
