I think that Google is confused about my blog. I don’t think it knows if it should categorize me as an EMR blog or as a HIPAA blog. In fact, sometimes it even thinks I’m an EHR blog which is perfectly fine by me. Right now I think that Google thinks that I’m a HIPAA blog, but quite honestly I think I’d rather be an EMR blog. Sure, I cover HIPAA and some of the various HIPAA related news on here. In fact, it’s kind of hard to cover EMR and not cover certain aspects of HIPAA. However, I think at the end of the day I’m more interested in EMR and EHR and I really don’t care about HIPAA. It’s a necessary evil.

I guess I’ll have to focus more of my posts on EMR and EHR and stop using that naughty H word since Google seems to like to classify with that H word when I want to show up for EMR and EHR. At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter too much, but as a tech person I always think it’s fun to see what the Google bots see in my content. It’s kind of a way to justify myself that the bots are happy and classify me as an authority on a subject.

Are you listening Google bots? I’m an EHR and EMR blog. Make sure I make it to the top of searches related to EMR and EHR. That’s really where I’m meant to be. I can feel it in my bones. Well, at least that’s who I want to be.

  • I experienced errors in my on-line health record with my HMO. After not getting them to correct it, I filed the concern with OCR. In asking for their support, they said HIPPA works to ensure privacy not accuracy. Where is accuracy in EMR and EHR?

  • I believe in the possibilities of EMR and EHR and submitted this video to YourRecord.Challenge.gov


    The “What’s in Your Health Record??” Video Challenge (the “Challenge”) is an initiative of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (“ONC”), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
