Happy New Year to everyone!

I hope that everyone has had a safe and wonderful holiday season. Today I posted a stats report on EMR and HIPAA and so I decided I’d start doing the same on the other Healthcare Scene blogs. I think it will tell an interesting story about the progression of the Healthcare Scene blog network over time.

So, without further ado, here are some interesting stats I got from a report on Hospital EMR and EHR for 2014.

In 2014, we published 213 new posts on Hospital EMR and EHR, growing the total archive of this blog to 793 posts.

Hospital EMR and EHR was viewed about 200,000 times in 2014. The busiest day of the year was October 15th with 1,484 views. The most popular post that day was Investor Wants to Take Down Epic. Imagine that!

I always find my list of top posts for 2014 ironic since they often are posts from previous years. However, you can see why the top posts are still interesting in 2014:
1. Why Is It So Hard to Become a Certified Epic consultant?
2. Investor Wants to Take Down Epic
3. CMS Issues Final Rule on EHR Certification Flexibility, MU Stage 2 Extension, and MU Stage 3 Timeline
4. Soarian: Does Siemens Finally Have an Epic-Killer?
5. The Argument for Meditech

Not too bad. Epic is only involved in 3 of the top 5. That’s a little surprising since so many people on this blog love to read about Epic.

Hospital EMR and EHR has had visitors from 147 countries in all, but the US is far and away the top readership. Thanks to the 165 views that came from Italy (sorry, I have an Italy bias addiction in case you didn’t know).

I hope you enjoyed the stats and thanks for reading! Here’s to a wonderful 2015!
