There are a number of great EMR (Electronic Medical Record) forums on the web. There really is a lot to choose from and so when you’re tired of reading my EMR blog or when I’m too busy to post everything I’d like to post then you can visit these EMR hideaways:

EMRUpdate.comUnbiased, Impartial, Independent EMR Information
This is the premier EMR forum on the net. It has the most activity and a wealth of information. I am a little biased since I am a techonology forum moderator on EMR Update. You can find me on the site as “techguy”. This EMR forum really should be enough for you to read for the rest of your life.

Doctor’s Gadget Electronic Medical Records and Medical PDA Forum
My second favorite EMR forum. This site probably sees as many visitors as EMR Update, but it doesn’t get nearly as many people posting. I like that it doesn’t just talk about EMR, but also talks about medical gadgetry. My brothers are all tech guys, but they have both recognized that I’m the man with the most tech toys. Like the t-shirt says, “He who dies with the most toys….WINS!!” At least it should say that, and that’s also why I love all the technology found at Doctor’s Gadget.

EMR ConsultantEMR Consultant Forum
This is a very nice forum, but for some reason it just hasn’t seen the traffic that it deserves. The EMR Consultant website is well worth the time since it is absolutely free and the forum is a nice read, but not yet comprehensive. I wish it saw more activity, but it hasn’t taken off quite yet. It still has some good information posted.

DocsBoard – Ultimate Discussion for Doctors
I’m not a doctor so supposedly I’m not allowed to post on it. This really doesn’t make sense to restrict people who aren’t doctors. I hear they are really anal about who can participate in their doctor discussion. Sure it makes sense that a Doctor wouldn’t want a tech person’s input on implementing an EMR system. I’m sure they’re EMR and technology experts already. Whatever!! I hear the board is dying with little or no action so maybe this one doesn’t even deserve to be posted here.

Now you can see why I don’t have much time to post here.
