Happy New Year! EMR and HIPAA Stats Report

Happy New Year to everyone!

I hope that everyone has had a safe and wonderful holiday season. Mine has been better than expected. I had a wonderful 2012 and I’m looking forward to an even better 2013.

I got a report that had some interesting stats related to EMR and HIPAA for 2012 that I thought I’d share.

In 2012, there were 283 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,068 posts.

EMR and HIPAA was viewed about 1,800,000 times in 2012

The busiest day of the year was January 26th with 8,517 views. The most popular post that day was GE Centricity Advance Ceasing Operations. As part of that post I got one of the best compliments I’ve ever gotten on my blog. They told me, “we know you’ll be fair.” I really appreciated them saying that since it is indeed my goal.

I really find my list of most popular posts ironic since so many of them were from past years. Luckily most of them are still valid today:
1. 2014 EHR Mandate
2. Examples of HIPAA Privacy Violation
3. Overwhelming List of EMR Companies
4. Email is Not HIPAA Secure
5. Obama Wants Full EHR by 2014

I’m particularly proud of the EHR mandate posts since there is A LOT of confusion about whether there’s an EHR mandate or not. Those posts do a good job fleshing out the answer to that question.

EMR and HIPAA has had visitors from 179 countries in all, but the US is far and away the top readership.

I hope you enjoyed the stats and thanks for reading! Here’s to a wonderful 2013!
