A Turducken is a chicken, stuffed inside of a duck, stuffed inside of a turkey, and then cooked for a good long time. I'm told by people who've had them that they are:
- Wonderful to eat
- Complicated to prepare
My friends' third observation on Turducken was that it was worth the effort, and that parallels my own experience with standards based health information exchanges.
Have a happy Thanksgiving for those of you in the US, and for those of you who are not, have a good week.
UPDATE: My wife pointed out to me after having heard about this morning's post that you can purchase a Turducken already prepared. The same is true for the multiple standards put together by HITSP. See OHF, IPF and CONNECT for some examples. Another excellent comparison.
