Last week I spent the entire week at Epic in Verona, Wisconsin. I was presenting on "Lessons Learned Implementing the Advance Beneficiary Notification Module". I know -- a stimulating subject for the masses....Our presentation went really well. Very well attended and many questions after we ended so I considered it a success. The Epic conference is pretty amazing since I think Verona, WI is pretty smallish size town but once a year there are 10,000 people who converge on this complex in the middle of a cow field. It is an amazing facility by any standard but does make my skin crawl a bit with the amount of our health care dollars that go into building that amazing campus.
After a week of stuffing everything I could into my small brain we left after sessions on Thursday and went to visit the state capital in Madison. I think it is the most amazing state capital I've ever visited for the beauty of the building and the various types of stone used to construct the building.....I think it might even trump the Capital Building in Washington, D.C. for it's beauty.
The rotunda ceiling...too bad you cannot see the painting in the center..
