Top Hospital EMR & EHR Posts

I was recently asked to identify some of the top blog posts from my websites. It was an interesting exercise to dive into the stats and see what was my top 2012 blog posts. I was actually surprised by what I found.

When I pulled up my stats for 2012, I found that the top Hospital EMR and EHR post was about The Pains of Becoming a Certified Epic Consultant. It’s a great post and there is a lot of interest in becoming a Certified Epic Consultant thanks to the stranglehold that Epic puts on becoming one. The surprising part is that this post was done back in the middle of 2011. However, the post is still getting a ton of traffic.

In fact, as I looked through the list of posts with the most traffic, I had to go all the way down to the 8th post on the list to fnd one from 2012. The top 2012 post was about CA Doctors Saying Their Epic Install Created Massive Turmoil. That’s a great post by Anne Zieger as well. I expect it will continue to do really well for a long time to come. Plus, it’s amazing that the top 2012 post was from only 2 months ago. I’d have thought that one of the early 2012 posts would have had more time to make it to the top of the list. I guess not.

As most of you probably know, I’m a stats addict so I love this stuff. It will be interesting to see which posts become the most enduring. It’s something that’s really hard for me to predict, but it’s always great when content you’ve written years ago is still providing value to readers.
