EMR Company Blogs

Many people don’t even realize that this website is a blog. The fact is that blogs have become so powerful that you can create an entire website powered by blog software and no one would know the difference. As you can imagine I’m a huge fan of blogs. What readers of this blog don’t realize is that beyond this blog I actually have 3 other major blogs and probably a dozen other minor ones.

Blogs have so many benefits that I won’t even begin to list them. However, I still find it amazing that I haven’t spent a penny on marketing this blog (although I did just do my first advertising trade) and yet I’m getting about 5,000 pageviews a day. On some of my other blogs with larger niches I reached over 47,000 pageviews in one day with $0 spent on marketing. It still astounds me how much traffic a well done blog can create.

As such, I’m always a fan of EMR companies that do a good job with their EMR company blog. Let me give you two examples of EMR company blogs that I think do a pretty good job on their EMR company blogs:
Straight Talk – A blog by Evan Steele the CEO of SRSsoft, a hybrid EMR company
XLEMR – An EMR company blog

Now these examples are far from perfect. I could quickly create a long laundry list of changes that wouldn’t be hard to implement that would improve their blogs substantially. They’re missing even more opportunities. However, what I like about these two blogs is some of the content they’ve created and the fact that they’re engaged in the discussion of EMR. A well done blog can not only market your EMR software, but can also be an amazing way to engage with your customers both future and current.

I’m sure there are a lot of other EMR company blogs. If you know of one, please let me know about it in the comments. I’d love to see some of the other EMR companies that are out there in the blogosphere.

  • The Practice Fusion Blog contains posts about HIT policy, the Practice Fusion product, hightlights of upgrades and new features as they are released, and tips on the strategic implementation of EHRs in clinical practice. Blog posts there also link to Twitter and the Linked In Practice Fusion group.

  • Robert,
    Thanks for pointing your blog out. I’ve read it before and linked to it also and you’ve created some interesting content. Makes sense that someone with such a new web business model would be blogging also. Nice work. I also love how active you are across other people’s blogs, linkedin, etc.

  • Muhammad,
    I just found your blog yesterday (which is probably how you found me). I liked how you took the meaningful use matrix and showed how MTBC met the criteria. It was interesting to see.

  • Chuck,
    Actually blogs that have that disclaimer are even better. I prefer when you get people’s full opinions and not just some filtered company lines.

    Thanks for the link on your site. I really appreciate it.

  • Nabeel,
    Welcome to the EMR blogosphere. I love when EMR vendors blog.

    I’d recommend getting off Blogger and use WordPress. You’ll be glad you did.

  • I think you have a good point there about how a blog with a good content can draw remarkable traffice without any advertising. you are right in the fact that it can be used as an effective and almost cost free marketing tool for emr in specific and in general.
