If it seems like I’m always celebrating some milestone for blog posts or pageviews or some other measure of what we’ve accomplished with a blog, then it’s probably the case. Considering Healthcare Scene has 15 different blogs, there are a lot of milestones for each blog. Since each blog is my baby (unlike a parent, there are some I like more than others), I feel the need to celebrate the achievements of each of my babies.
With that in mind, I hope you’ll indulge me for a few moments of celebration for the Hospital EMR and EHR blog. If you don’t like celebration, well then maybe you’ll enjoy a look at some of the stats of what Hospital EMR and EHR has accomplished:
- 700 blog posts
- Over Half a Million Pageviews
- 409 comments
- 1236 email subscribers (also goes out to the 1895 Healthcare Scene email subscribers)
I’m pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished since the first post back on May 19, 2011. It’s been fun posting content just focused on hospitals and their unique EHR and Healthcare IT challenges. Plus, the growth of this site has paralleled the trend of hospitals acquiring ambulatory practices. I believe what we do here to help hospital CIOs and other hospital IT leadership is only going to become more important.
It’s always interesting to see which blog posts gain the most interest from users. Here’s a list of our top6 most visited blog posts:
- Why Is It So Hard to Become a Certified Epic consultant?
- Soarian: Does Siemens Finally Have an Epic-Killer?
- Could Epic End Up The Victim Of Its Own EMR Success?
- Why Do People Dislike Epic So Much? Let Me Count The Ways
- Is Epic Stifling Health IT Innovation?
- The Argument for Meditech
I guess you can see clearly that people like to read about Epic. Although, people are even more interested in becoming Epic certified. That post has had more visits to it than all of the other posts on this list combined. Epic certainly has a love-hate relationship for many in the industry.
Thanks so much to everyone who reads us regularly and supports what we do. We’re really looking forward to the next 700 blog posts!
