I’ve been talking about this quite a bit lately on this blog (see my post about social media EMR information). However, I love how the described their shift from newsletters to tweets and blog posts since they’re more current. I obviously agree. Although, if you subscribe to the EMR and HIPAA email you can enjoy the convenience of an email newsletter with the current info of a blog.

I saw this announcement a while ago. I’m really excited to see what Rock Health is able to do. They definitely have a number of big names. I wish that I was some way involved with them since I love their approach. Plus, I’m really excited to have my brother, David, participating with me on the Smart Phone Healthcare website I recently launched. Mobile healthcare is a really hot area of the market and I think together we’re going to bring some interesting perspectives to the mobile area of healthcare.

I usually hate PDF’s and a tweet in a blog post that leads to a PDF is probably even worse. Although, it has an interesting format for considering the multiple e-Prescribing incentive programs. Of course, if you’re a regular reader of the site, then you already have started ePrescribing right?

This just made me laugh and so I had to share it. Although, if you Like EMR and HIPAA on Facebook, then it will be so much better than prison. Well, maybe not much better, but it will make me smile.
