My Webinar “What worked in VistA?” May 11, 2012

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.
