Every couple months I like to take a bit of an inventory on EMR and HIPAA along with recognizing new advertisers to the EMR and HIPAA family along. Not to mention send out a big thanks to all those advertisers who have renewed during that time period as well.

EMR and HIPAA is still doing more amazing than I ever thought it could. During the slow summer months we’re still averaging about 4500 pageviews per day. In fact, we’re inching ever closer to 5 million pageviews since we first started tracking the stats. I think I might have to celebrate the day we reach that landmark.

This will be the 1,139th post on EMR and HIPAA and we’ve had 5,590 comments made. That’s roughly 5 comments per post. So thank you to all those who contribute to the amazing community that exists around EMR and HIPAA. Much of the best information happens in the comments.

I’m also really excited to say that we just passed 3000 email subscriptions to EMR and HIPAA as well. Pretty amazing since I only started the email newsletter a short while ago.

New Advertisers
A number of advertisers started their ad campaign on EMR and HIPAA since I last posted. Many of them are really benefiting from the rotating sidebar ads that I announced last post. You can find more details on EMR and HIPAA advertising.

GFI – FaxMaker – GFI offers a number of interesting services for small to medium size businesses. One that’s particularly interesting in the healthcare space is called the GFI FaxMaker. If you don’t already have a fax server in your office, go and read my post about the virtues of a fax server in healthcare.

Quest – Care360 – I’ve long been intrigued by the Quest EHR model. I think that having an EHR from your lab company provides some interesting benefits that can’t be realized by other EHR vendors. Plus, I love the idea that their EHR is already setup for thousands of doctor’s offices who already use Care360 for their labs. All they have to do is turn on the EHR module. That’s a compelling reason for many clinics to consider the Care360 EHR.

Amazing Charts – Amazing Charts has become not only an advertiser on EMR and HIPAA, but you’ll see them across the entire network of Healthcare Scene websites. Amazing Charts was one of the first EHR vendors to offer a relatively inexpensive EHR product. They were one of the first companies to move the EHR cost needle while still providing a high quality product. Amazing Charts was started by a practicing family physician, you can read about his and the Amazing Chart journey here.

Health Informatics Forum – A great health informatics forum that’s run by the incredibly interesting Chris Paton. The forum has over 5,000 members discussing a variety of healthcare informatics topics. One of the things I like most about the forum is the real international flavor. I love learning from healthcare informatics in other countries. This healthcare informatics forum is a good place to start.

Renewing Advertisers
Of course, I’m always overwhelmed by the number of companies that continue to renew their advertising on EMR and HIPAA. Thanks this time to Practice Fusion, EMR Consultant, MxSecure, Mitochon Systems, Nuesoft, Sequelmed, Scantronix, Medical Web Experts, and GE Centricity Advance for all renewing their ads. Almost everyone on that list has been long time supporters of what we do at EMR and HIPAA.
