It’s always nice when people are excited by your EMR launch. Seldom will you see more excitement over an EMR, though, than the dance party they threw at St. Augustine, FL-based Flagler Hospital.

In the extremely cute video below, nurses, pharmacy techs, transporters, supply chain staff, educators, IT specialists, phlebotomists, lab techs, housekeepers and the engineering crew show off their dance skills to Stereo MC’s “Connected,” all to celebrate the launch of Flagler’s Allscripts EMR. (I particularly liked the section where dancing medical records folks held up charts, each with one letter on them, spelling out “Good-Bye Paper” — then dropped them.) So get down with Stereo MC and get connected with Flagler — you’ll get more than one giggle out of it. ūüôā
