I have to feel pretty lucky to be a healthcare IT blogger. Certainly it’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun. What’s amazing to me is that just on this EMR and HIPAA blog, I’ve published over 2750 posts and generated over 12 million views. If you look at the broader Healthcare Scene network we’ve published over 11,000 blog posts, generated 18 million pageviews, 55,000 email subscribers, and have over 72k Twitter followers. That’s insane for me to think about when I look back on what started as a fun side project one weekend over 11 years ago.
Today I’m feeling a lot of gratitude for my readers and supporters over all these years. My hope is that I’ve provided them as much value as they’ve provided me in being able to be a full time blogger for the past 7 years.
I would have had to stop a long time ago if it weren’t for amazing companies who supported the vision of what we want to do at Healthcare Scene. If you’ve gotten value out of reading EMR and HIPAA, take a few minutes to check out the companies that financially support the work we do here. Plus, you might just find something that makes your life easier and healthcare better for patients.
AndPlus – This is a new supporter of EMR and HIPAA, but they have some good experience developing custom software in healthcare. If you’re looking to develop a healthcare app or need some custom development work to supplement the work you’re already doing, reach out to AndPlus and see if their software development experts can help you get their faster and with better quality.
Stericycle Communication Solutions – If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you’re probably familiar with Stericycle and specifically Stericycle Communication Solutions. They’ve been a long time sponsor of the Communication Solutions Series of blog posts which really put into perspective how many healthcare organizations can improve their patient communication. If you need high quality telephone answering, online appointment scheduling, or automated communication services in your office, then you should take a second to connect with Stericycle Communication Solutions.
Breakaway Learning Solutions, a Conduent Company – Another extremely long time sponsor of EMR and HIPAA is Breakaway Learning Solutions. You may remember them as The Breakaway Group which was part of Xerox, but they’re split off now in their new company called Conduent. Despite the change in company name, they’re still the people behind the unique EHR simulator training method that’s made them so successful. To get an idea of how they look at things, check out their Breakaway Thinking series of blog posts. If you’re in need of a better way to do your EHR training, reach out to Breakaway Learning Solutions.
HIPAAOne – Given the name of this blog is EMR and HIPAA, it was a natural fit for us to work with HIPAAOne. The team at HIPAAOne has an extreme focus on making HIPAA manageable for every practice. I love their thorough approach that sets them apart from many of their competitors. Along with offering a solid HIPAA Risk Assessment tool, they also recently put out this whitepaper on Making Windows 10 HIPAA Compliant which they did in partnership with Microsoft. Making Windows 10 HIPAA compliant is something almost every healthcare organization has to do or will have to do shortly.
It’s amazing to work with such great partners that I feel comfortable writing about and promoting on this site. Hopefully some of them can help you and your organization be more effective at what you do. Our goal with all of our advertisers is to have them be an asset to readers of this site. We aren’t always perfect with that, but that’s our goal.
Thanks to each of you for reading. Here’s to the next 2750 blog posts!
