You’ll have to excuse the lack of serious content in many of my posts this week or so. It’s the holidays and so traffic is down. So, I’m not spending as much time creating other content since many people won’t get to see it anyway. Plus, I’m heading to California to visit some family as well and it looks like I’ll have to try and borrow the neighbors wireless if I want internet. Should be a nice digital break to enjoy the beautiful California weather. That said, I do have a number of great posts in store for the new year and will probably schedule a few this week while I’m away.

I did want to take a second to highlight the new EMR job board that I created. You can read my full writeup about the EMR job board. Since creating the EMR and HIPAA job board, I’ve seen a number of other EMR or healthcare IT related job boards around. They were a ton more expensive than mine. I’m not sure if that means I should raise my price or not, but for now I’ll leave it where it is.

I was interested to see how well an EMR job board did on this site. I think I have a strong niche with many people asking me about EMR jobs. Plus, there’s going to be a lot of people looking for qualified EMR sales, implementation and consultants as ARRA really starts to heat up. So, I wondered if anyone would really look at the EMR and HIPAA job board.

We had our first job posted for an “EMR-EHR Sales Consultant – EMR Implementation Specialist” by 1st Providers Choice about 6 days ago. In that time the specific job page has already had 33 77 views. I think that’s a pretty decent number of views for only paying $15.

What do people think? Any suggestions on how I can make the job board more useful? I’m also happy to talk with people about doing some bulk posting of jobs if you have a number of jobs you want posted. Let me know your thoughts. Don’t be shy.
