EMR and HIPAA Website Statistics

Today I was looking over some of the various statistics for this EMR and HIPAA blog. I can’t believe I started this blog about 2.5 years ago all in my quest to become an expert on EMR. I guess time will tell how much I really know about EMR. Either way, this blog has been a great way for me to learn about EMR and document some of the lessons I’ve learned.

As I was looking through the statistics for this blog, I decided to do a quick back of the napkin excel formula calculation of how much time people have spent reading my EMR and HIPAA articles. Here’s how I broke it down using statistics over the past year:

Number of Visits: 50,000
Average Time Spent on EMR and HIPAA: 2:04 minutes

Then, I took the above 2 numbers to calculate how many hours people have spent reading about EMR and HIPAA on this site and came up with the following:
1722 hours
71.75 days

Hopefully that was a well spent 71.75 days that helped improve a doctors use of EMR.
