When you’ve been blogging for as long as I have and on as many blogs as I do, you start to take all the aggregate numbers for granted a little bit. At least until you sit down and add up all the numbers when someone asks you for them.
I did this recently and found that across the network of Healthcare Scene websites, we’ve generated over 22.6 million pageviews across 11,500+ blog posts and 17,566 comments. Just on EMR and EHR (this blog) alone, the 2075 blog posts have generated over 5 million pageviews. Plus, that doesn’t count the 53,000 email subscribers who read the content we create in their email client. We send about 150,000 to 200,000 emails per week with great healthcare IT content.
We’re proud of these numbers because it represents so many people getting information they can use to help them perform their job better and hopefully improve healthcare. Thank you for each of you that read us regularly.
Along with a thank you to our readers, I want to take a second to thank many of the companies that sponsor Healthcare Scene. We have a wide variety of sponsors that purchased sponsored blog posts, email marketing, and display ads (Check out our media kit for more info). Their support allows us to continue our work to provide great healthcare IT content, but we work hard to make sure they receive a lot of value in return.
If you’re a reader of this site, take a second to look through these companies that support Healthcare Scene. No doubt some of them could help your organization improve healthcare.
Galen Healthcare Solutions – Galen Healthcare Solutions is a great company that along with offering consulting services provides some really great tools and services to help organizations that are switching EHR software. They were one of the first companies I’ve found that handles EHR data conversions when you’re switching EHRs. Plus, they’ve also created a really great archive solution for those trying to deal with legacy solutions. If you’re switching EHR vendors or if you want to archive some old legacy health IT systems, check out what Galen Healthcare Solutions has to offer. Not to mention their EMR optimization services as well.
Solution Reach – While Solution Reach is well known in the Dental market, they are just now working to make a big splash in the medical market. They offer a patient relationship management system that helps a medical prctice with patient education, practice marketing, reputation management, patient reminders, and much more. If you’re a medical practice, take some time to check out the services they offer.
Intel Health – We’ve been lucky to work with Intel on a number of great projects including a couple recent CIO video interviews. I don’t think anyone needs an introduction to Intel, but many people might be surprised by how many things Intel is doing in healthcare. In a recent video we did with Intel they said “We know the future, because we’re building it.” In so many ways this is correct since Intel’s technology is at the heart of most of the exciting things we see happening in healthcare IT.
Conduent – Many of you might be familiar with our Breakaway Thinking blog post series that’s sponsored by the Breakaway Learning Solutions (A Conduent Company). Breakaway Learning Solutions provides a really innovative way to train EHR users using a simulator based training model. Whether you’re training EHR users as part of a go-live or you’re training new employees that join your system, take a look at Breakaway Learning Solutions unique approach to EHR training.
Stericycle Communication Solutions – As a long time sponsor, most of you will know about Stericycle Communication Solutions. They provide a wide variety of communication solutions for healthcare including patient reminders, call center services, patient self scheduling and much more.
FormFast – Most healthcare organizations are likely familiar with FormFast’s form technology which is in use at over 1100 healthcare organizations. However, FormFast also just recently launched a new product called FormFast connect which provides mobile pre-registration to patients’ mobile devices. If you’ve never seen their form technology, check it out and you’ll see the difference between other form options out there.
Kareo – You likely saw the recent #KareoChat we hosted, but we’ve also been working with Kareo in a number of other ways as well. For example, we’ll be presenting a webinar on Understanding Patient: The Secret to a Thriving Medical Pracitce on Aug 23rd. Kareo provides a full suite of software and services to medical practices including: EHR, Practice Management, Revenue Cycle, Practice Marketing, and much more.
Iron Mountain – Healthcare Scene has been creating a whole series of content for Iron Mountain’s blog. I’m sure most organizations know about Iron Mountain and you’ve likely seen their trucks. However, they also offer a whole suite of IT and data center services along with their records management, document imaging, data management, secure shredding, etc.
MRO – We’re happy to have MRO sponsoring our special HIM Scene website focused on HIM professionals. MRO is one of the leading providers of Release of Information services out there. If you’re looking for an outsourced service to streamline your release of information process, check them out.
HIPAA One – If you have to do a HIPAA Risk Assessment (yes, that’s basically all of you), then you’ll want to check out HIPAA One. They offer a solution that walks you through the HIPAA risk assessment and properly documents everything for you. I haven’t seen any other solution out there that’s simpler and more complete than what HIPAA One offers.
MedicaSoft – This is a brand new sponsor for us, but we’re happy to have them sponsoring Healthcare Scene. Along with offering a full EHR solution, Medicasoft also is seeing a lot of traction with their Paitent Portal solution and their interoperability solutions. I love the way MedicaSoft describes their solutions: “Innovative Healthcare IT Products Built with Modern Technology.” I know this is what many would like to see in healthcare.
Hopefully I didn’t leave anyone out. As you can see we have a great group of companies that support Healthcare Scene. We’re lucky to have them as partners in the work we do. Hopefully some of these companies can help you solve the problems you face in your organization. If you want to join this great group of companies, you can find more information here.
Thanks for indulging us a little bit as we recognize those who support all the work we’ve done. However, we still have a lot more to do when it comes to making sure technology improves healthcare. In fact, shortly we’ll be announcing a new healthcare IT event that’s focused on healthcare organizations collaborating together to improve healthcare. More details to come very soon!
A sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of you who support Healthcare Scene!
