I’ve been recently working on the Healthcare Scene media kit (still being edited as we speak) and a presentation that illustrates the influence of Healthcare Scene. As part of that slide deck I gathered the numbers for this slide:
As I look at any of these numbers, I have to admit that it’s really hard for me to comprehend any of them. We’re approaching the 11th anniversary of Healthcare Scene and it’s really hard for me to imagine how far we’ve come since that weekend I got bored and started blogging about EMR.
This week of gratitude, I’m particularly grateful for those people who trust Healthcare Scene for their daily cup of what’s interesting in healthcare IT. Amidst all the noise that exists in this world, it’s quite humbling to think that so many people look to this network of blogs to stay informed.
Just as humbling is the hundreds of companies that have sponsored the work we do at Healthcare Scene. What’s best is that most of our sponsors started out as readers. It’s gratifying to know that they valued the work we do enough to support our sites. A big thanks to our current crop of sponsors: The Breakaway Group, Stericycle Communications Solutions, HIPAA One, Kareo, Iron Mountain, Intel Health, Samsung, HIM on Call, Central Learning, Greythorn, Innovative Consulting Group, Cumberland Consulting Group, EMR Staffing Partners, UCSD Master in Health Informatics (Online), Galen Healthcare Solutions, and 4MedApproved. As sponsors, I’ve gotten to know each of these organizations quite well and they are all working hard to improve healthcare.
This Thanksgiving Week, I just wanted to take a minute to celebrate and show gratitude to all of you. Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. Thanks for sponsoring. Thanks for sharing on social media. Thanks for the private messages and responses. Thanks for the likes and hearts and favorites and retweets. I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing community. I can’t wait to see what happens with healthcare IT over the next decade.
