“Yada Yada”

"The Yada Yada" is the 153rd episode of the American NBC sitcom Seinfeld. The 19th
episode of the eighth season, it aired on April 24, 1997. “Yada Yada” is boring or empty talk
listening to a lot of yada yada about the economy —often used interjectionally especially in
recounting words regarded as too dull or predictable to be worth repeating.

After writing more than 200 blogs over the last 5 years Electronic Health Records and
Information Technology, myself and my co-author Dr Kamens constantly review the literature
and the same blogs can be printed today that were written 5 years.

There has been quite a bit of progress but no earth-shaking change to improve the
“Electronic Experience”.

Multiple topics have been discussed multiple times:

1. Interoperability-Yada Yada
2. Burden of work on provider-Yada Yada
3. Burnout of provider-Yada Yada
4. Endless clicking-Yada Yada
5. Endless data collection-Yada Yada
6. Destroying the provider-patient relationship-Yada Yada
7. Homework-Yada Yada
8. Etc.-etc.-Yada Yada
9. User-friendly interfaces-Yada Yada
10. Fill in the blank______-Yada Yada

Jerry and George said it best. Yada Yada

Despite the recurrent, endless problems with the Electronic Health Record and it’s desire
to control human behavior (unlikely), we will continue to occasionally inform, amuse or
relate to human user.
