Elvis--Our Newest Fellow

The American College of Medical Informatimusicology is pleased to announce that Elvis Presley--the King of Rock and Roll himself--has come out of retirement to become our Official Celebrity Spokesperson. Elvis debuted in his new role (and, in doing so, became one of our newest Fellows) at HIStalkapalooza at HIMSS12 in Las Vegas last night. (ESD sponsor's highlights video is also availble.)

Elvis performed remakes of two of his classic songs written just for the occasion by our President and Founder, Ross D. Martin, MD, MHA, FACMImimi.  The Lyrics are below.  ACMImimi will be posting more about this historic night and all of the new Fellows of The College in the coming days.


HIStalk Rock
(To "Jailhouse Rock")

The warden threw a party in the county jail
Prison band was there and they began to wail
Band was jumpin' down the joint began to swing
But all them jailbirds wanted just one thing--

HIStalk
They were readin' HIStalk
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was loggin' on to read HIStalk

Number forty-seven said to number two
I can't wait to see a pic of Inga's shoes
HIStalkapalooza is the place to be
If we break out together you can dance with me at

HIStalk
Let's go to HIStalk
Everybody in the whole cell block
Is bustin' out to go to HIStalk (and here they are...)

Mr. Greg Wilson's here to host the show
Little Johnny Bush knows where the HISsies go
We'll have a fashion show and name the King and Queen
You can wow the judges if you make a scene

So let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody here who loves HIStalk
Start dancin' to the HIStalk Rock

Sad sack Neal says, "For heaven sakes
I really don't want another pie in the face"
Judy says, "What about the spot I'm in
I get nominated but I just can't win"

So let's rock
C'mon Glen, baby, let's rock
All the nominees who love HIStalk
Keep dancin' to the HIStalk Rock

The party's gettin' started so we'd be remiss
If we didn't raise our glasses now and blow a kiss
To tonight's judges and to ESD
For giving all the food and drinks for free

Now let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody here who loves HIStalk
Start shoutin' "Mr. HIStalk ROCKS!" (come on now...)
Shout "Mr. HIStalk ROCKS!" (that's right...)
Keep shoutin' "Mr. HIStalk ROCKS!"
Shout "Mr. HIStalk ROCKS!" (one more time)
Shout "Mr. HIStalk ROCKS!"

Gimme My Damn Data
(in Honor of Dave (e-Patient Dave) deBronkart--to "Blue Suede Shoes")

Well it's one for the doctor
Two for the nurse
You say you're tryin' to treat me
So don't make me feel worse

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can cut out my heart
Take it to the dump
Feed it to the dogs
Replace it with a pump
You can fill me with drugs
Just to keep me alive
But there's one more thing
I gotta have to survive

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can feed me pills
To treat my gloom
Lock me up
In a rubber room
You can tie me down
And shock my brain
But just one cure's
Gonna ease my pain

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can send me your bill
Charge anything
Drive a nice car
Live like a king
With all the dough
That I pay
Tell me why is it so hard
To get my data right away

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine
