EMR and Related Organizations

I’ve been coming accross a few different EMR and Health Information Management organizations that I probably should have known about if I was going to claim to have an EMR blog. Here’s are a few that I have found during my start into EMR blogging. I admit that I’ve only found a couple so far, but I figured if I posted the few that I’ve found here I might here from some of my readers on other organizations I should know about and follow.
HIMSS – Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
TEPR – Towards the Electronic Patient Record

ASTM – Continuity of Care Record(CCR) Standard
HL7 – HL7 Standard

I know I’m missing a lot, but I’m sure my trusty readers will let me know of any others worth mentioning. I also must admit that I wish I would have gone to either the HIMSS or TEPR conference this year. I should have planned better. The HIMSS 2006 would have been really cool because I could have gone to the blogger meetup. Maybe next year.
