The healthcare technology community is abuzz these days with a number of key topics from mHealth to patient engagement, senior care to ACOs, ICD-10 to EHRs. There are so many diverse insights and smart perspectives joining the discussion against the ever-shifting backdrop of care delivery. In an effort to showcase many of the great voices lending their expertise to the conversation and raising the important questions and new ideas in health IT, we continue the tradition with our third 2015 list of Top 50 Health IT Blogs.
We’re really proud to have CDW include us on this list multiple times as they have done in past years as well. Plus, when we look at many of the other blogs on their list, we’re proud to be in such great company.
At Healthcare Scene, we’ve always provided readers the option to get the latest Healthcare Scene blog posts right in their email. As we continue to expand the content we write, we saw that readers wanted more targeted content and email lists that provided extremely focused blog posts on specific areas of healthcare.
With that in mind, our first targeted email list is focused on HIM (Health Information Management) professionals and is called HIM Scene. To start, we plan to send out about 1 email per week of highly focused, quality HIM related content. If you’re interested in HIM related topics, just enter your email below and you’ll get the latest and greatest HIM commentary from a wide range of HIM experts straight to your email.
Thanks for all your support! We hope you’ll enjoy our HIM focused content. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve Healthcare Scene or the new HIM Scene, we’d love to hear it.
We’d like as many in the Healthcare Scene community to be able to attend the Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference (HITMC). So, as you can see above, we’re offering a $300 discount off the registration price for Healthcare Scene readers. All you have to do is use the promo code: HITrocks
The conference is backed by an amazing group of sponsors. These companies represent some of the best companies out there when it comes to healthcare IT. We’re still adding more as we get closer to the event, but this event would not be possible without their excellent support.
We hope that many in the Healthcare Scene community will join us in Las Vegas!
We’ve been working for a while to bring together all of the great content we create on the Healthcare Scene blog network. We still have some work to do, but I’m excited to offer people a simple option to subscribe to all of the Healthcare Scene email lists at once. Plus, we have a new option that allows you to subscribe to all of the Healthcare Scene blogs in one email. Just fill out the form below and check the emails you want to receive.
If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments or on the contact us page.
We’re really excited and proud to announce two new additions to the Healthcare Scene family of websites: Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today. Check out this press release that covers more details on Healthcare Scene’s acquisition of this leading healthcare IT job board and blog.
Healthcare IT Central is a leading job board, resume database, certification resource, and career website solely focused on healthcare IT professionals. Some of the top Healthcare and Healthcare IT companies post their healthcare IT and EHR jobs to the site along with searching through the resume database of over 9000 resumes. Plus, the Healthcare IT Central newsletter goes out to well over 13,000 healthcare IT professionals. Anyone looking to hire a healthcare IT position, improve their current career, or find a job in healthcare IT should check it out.
Healthcare IT Today is a blog focused on creating great content that will help healthcare IT professionals progress in their careers. Some of its more popular posts are about becoming Epic Certified and becoming a healthcare IT consultant. Check out the site for regular content that will help you progress in your healthcare IT career.
Each year we like to do a survey of readers. This is a great way for us to get feedback on how we can improve all of the various websites in the HealthcareScene.com blog network. We’ve experienced amazing growth over the past year and so we know we’re doing something right, but we believe that we can always improve.
One that note, I hope you’ll all take a minute to respond to the following survey. If you read more than one HealthcareScene.com website, you’ll probably see it posted again on those websites. You’ll only need to respond once for all of the sites.
It’s hard to consider this the launch of Hospital EMR and EHR, but I never formally announced it on Healthcare Scene and so consider this the official announcement of Hospital EMR and EHR.
I actually first started Hospital EMR and EHR back in May 2010. I guess it’s a good thing that I get it listed on Healthcare Scene before its one year anniversary. Over that time we’ve already done 91 posts focusing on hospital EMR and EHR issues.
We’ve seen really outstanding growth on the hospital EMR and EHR site and I expect we’re just getting started. Some of the largest hospital health IT vendors have been linking to our coverage of the hospital health IT space. Plus, even more hospital employees and hospital vendors are signing up for the email list (you can sign up here).
Most of the content on Hospital EMR and EHR is created by Katherine Rourke, but we also have some really great content from guest contributors and John even chimes in on occasion as well. Let us know what you think of the site and if there are more hospital related topics you’d like us to consider.
The best part is that as we add new blogs to the Healthcare Scene blog network, you’ll get the updates from the new blogs as well. All in one nice aggregate package. If I ever figure out a way to combine feeds, I’ll add them to this email as well. You can now sign up to any Healthcare Scene email list above including one aggregate email which includes posts from every blog.
We’re a little bit delayed on the formal announcement of a couple of the new Healthcare Scene websites that we launched. We’ll try and catch up with the announcements over the next week. We’ve been busy building out the network and now have 14 different Healthcare Scene blogs in the network. That’s pretty amazing growth considering before HIMSS in March we only had 3.
Today, I wanted to tell you about the official launch of the EMR Thoughts website. Many of you might have seen the website already since I’ve been posting there for a while now. However, I’m sure that many readers of the Healthcare Scene network haven’t heard about EMR Thoughts.
To be quite frank, I wasn’t quite sure what would come of the EMR Thoughts website. I just knew that I needed another place to be able to post the various EMR and EHR content that I thought was worthy of being posted. Thus, EMR thoughts was born.
Over time, it seems that EMR Thoughts has kind of come into its own with a general focus around what’s happening in the EMR and EHR industry. Many of the posts look at the EMR and EHR market. Others have looked at physician adoption of technology. Plus, we’ve had some pretty interesting coverage of the EMR and Healthcare IT job market.
I can’t promise the website will stick to just those topics, but I’m quite sure there will be a heavy emphasis along those same lines. So, if you’re someone interested in what’s happening with EMR and EHR software, then you’ll love EMR Thoughts. Check it out and join in the comments.
