As EMR and HIPAA passes our 3 year anniversary, I thought I’d take a moment to thank the sponsors of this blog. Their sponsorship makes this website possible. This is especially true at Christmas time. So, thanks to both EMR Choice and EMR Experts for your sponsorship and advertising on EMR and HIPAA. Our relationship with EMR Experts goes back almost 2 years and so hopefully they’ve found our relationship as beneficial as I have found it. EMR Choice is a new sponsor that’s really trying to do some good things in the EMR market.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 3 years since I started this blog. I first started out just wanting to document my experience with EMR. I still do that to a large extent, but it’s grown to a lot of other things including some of the various EMR related technologies like the ever popular Dragon Naturally Speaking medical. Regardless of the topic, I still am passionate about EMR and the effect that it can have on healthcare. I think a ton of things need to be done to improve its implementation, but it’s needed as a platform for the future of healthcare. It will be fun to see it evolve over the years.

Also, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays. May you enjoy the season and celebrate with those you love and care about.

I know that I have a number of EHR consultants that regularly read this blog. Plus, many of my readers have used, are looking to use or have heard stories about EHR consultants. I’m currently working on an article about EHR Consultants and so I’m interested in hearing people’s feedback about their experience with or as an EHR consultant. Here’s some things i’m interested in hearing about:

  • Benefits of an EHR Consultant
  • Challenges of an EHR Consultant
  • Finding a good EHR Consultant
  • Making the most of an EHR Consultant
  • Does an unbiased EHR Consultant exist?
  • etc…

Basically, I’m interested in answering the question of whether an EHR consultant has your best interest in mind and things you can do to ensure a quality experience with a consultant.

Also, you might look back at my five part series on EHR consultants to get you thinking.
