Staying Up to Date With the Latest Healthcare IT News and Technologies

Healthcare IT Today has been lucky over the past couple years to take part as a member of the Healthcare Scene blog network. It’s been great to offer great healthcare IT career resources to the readers of Healthcare Scene, but it’s also been great for Healthcare IT Today and Healthcare IT Central’s community to benefit from the latest and greatest healthcare IT content on Healthcare Scene.

For those that aren’t very familiar with Healthcare Scene, here’s a quick run down of their top sites that you may want to consider exploring. Plus, you can also get all of the great Healthcare Scene content right in your email inbox for easy reading.

EMR and HIPAA – This was the very first blog created in the Healthcare Scene blog network. So, its name can be misleading. Certainly, EMR and HIPAA does cover the various issues related to EMR software and the HIPAA privacy and security, but it definitely covers so much more. On EMR and HIPAA you can find blog posts on anything healthcare IT or medical economics related.

EMR and EHR – While EMR and EHR has definitely covered the transition to EMR and EHR software, it’s quickly becoming a center of thought leadership for health IT and the business of medicine for small practices. Occasionally it will stray from small practices, but for the most part EMR and EHR is trying to explore the topics that matter to small ambulatory practices.

Hospital EMR and EHR – This site is similar to EMR and EHR, but it’s obviously focused on the same issues from a hospital and health system perspective. Hospital EMR and EHR regularly covers the hospital EHR market, but also looks at other ways that health systems are being impacted by technology and how they can utilize a wide assortment of technologies to improve the care they provide.

Smartphone Healthcare – This blog follows the trends that have sometimes been called mHealth, mobile health, digital health, and a slew of other related names. In many cases that means that SmartPhone Healthcare is covering the health IT startup world as they try to disrupt healthcare as we know it.

HIM Scene – Technically HIM Scene is a subset of Hospital EMR and EHR, but this email list is focused on content specifically related to the Health Information Management (HIM) community by HIM Expert, Erin Head. If you are in the HIM profession, you should be sure to subscribe.

Healthcare Scene News – This site curates some of the most interesting announcements and press releases that are being put out by healthcare IT companies.

Healthcare Scene Videos – This is the home for the various interviews and videos that members of the Healthcare Scene network create. If you want to browse our entire collection of Health IT videos, you can subscribe on the Healthcare Scene YouTube channel.

Healthcare Scene has published over 10,000 health IT related blog posts over 10 years. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do so now so you’re up to date on the latest in health IT.
