5 EHR and Healthcare IT Bloggers

I recently wrote an article talking about the evolution and attrition of EHR bloggers over the last 9.5 years I’ve been blogging about EMR and healthcare IT. I thought it might be fun every week or so to highlight a number of EHR, healthcare IT or related blogs. I’ve been collecting a list for quite a while and I think you’ll find some new ones that you’ll find interesting and useful. In some cases, the blogs may not be updated regularly, but they usually have plenty of archived content for your reading enjoyment.

Here’s 3 EHR and Healthcare Blogs You Might enjoy:
MD Whistleblower – I think this doctor’s blog description says it all, “MD WHISTLEBLOWER PRESENTS VIGNETTES AND COMMENTARIES ON THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. WE PEEK ‘BEHIND THE MEDICAL CURTAIN’ AND DELIVER CANDOR AND CONTROVERSY IN EVERY POST.” Dr. Kirsch definitely delivers on his desire to deliver candor and controversy in his posts. I appreciate a blogger that’s not afraid to have strong opinions. It broadens the discussion and helps us all to learn and improve even if we don’t agree with the opinion.

Kristen Paulet – This is a newer healthcare IT marketing blog, but I figure why discriminate based on age. Ever since organizing the Health IT Marketing and PR conference I’ve been extremely interested in learning all I can about the techniques health IT companies are using to market their business. It’s been fun reading a fresh perspective and commentary on the subject from someone working in health IT marketing.

Perficient Healthcare – Many company blogs are terrible since they more like a company news feed than a blog. This can’t be said for Perficient’s healthcare blog. They cover a wide array of healthcare topics and really spend a lot of time making sure they’re creating quality content. Take for example, this post by Mel Smith Jones on what health education can learn from Netflix.

Nerdy Nurse – With a name like that, how could you not want to check her out? I believe we need more nurses blogging so that the nurse’s voice is heard. Right now I think the nurse voice is often missing in the healthcare IT discussions we are having. So, I’m glad that The Nerdy Nurse, a clinical informatics nurse, does what she can to elevate the voice of the nurse.

HIStalk – The TMZ of the healthcare IT industry and one of the only people that’s been blogging about healthcare IT longer than me. Mr. H does a tremendous job covering the latest and greatest healthcare IT trends, rumors, happenings, and gossip. #HITNerds love to read HIStalk.

There you have it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on these blogs and feel free to submit any blogs you like reading or think that I might not know about. I have quite a list for future posts, but I’m always on the looking for more.
