EMR and HIPAA Blog Gaining Steam

I know I’ve noted this before, but since this is my blog I’m glad to say that I can post my personal musings all I want. While I guess I have a devotion to any readership there may be I hope my personal tracking of the blog and updates on its success or failures will be of interest to those who read. If it doesn’t people are welcome to ignore this post(Is that a feature in WordPress?).

I’m 2 months into my EMR and HIPAA blogging experience and I’ve learned more than I could ever imagine. In fact, I realize even more today that I may never have a complete handle on this industry, but I hope that some insights will help other people in “The EMR Experience.”(Maybe this should be the real name of my blog)

Today, I finally went over the 10,000 page hit mark. Not too bad for 2 months. Not too bad for doing it in my free time(and my boring e-commerce class). I think this is pretty significant considering I’ve only done 50 posts so far. The search engines have enjoyed those 50 postsand treated me well by referring new readers. Although some of the search phrases make me wonder why they clicked on my site(subject of a different post).

I only have two major dissappointments to date. First the number of people that lurk the website without commenting. Maybe I need to create some more controversial posts, say something bad about someone’s company or pay people to comment. Second, is the time that I have to committ to posting to the website. I would really have liked some of my other pages like EMR and EHR vendors, EMR vs. Paper Charts, EMR Evaluating and Purchasing, EMR Features and EMR Implementation Ideas to become a tool that could change the way people find, purchase and implement an EMR. It will happen, but I’m slighty saddened by their slow progress. Be patient and please lend any ideas you have.

Thanks to all those that are reading. The site seems to be gaining a certain forward momentum that will hopefully continue to progress and become a very valuable EMR resource on the net.
