EMR Presentations
As many of you know, I’ve really enjoyed the chances I’ve had to go and speak to groups about Electronic Medical Records (EMR). I haven’t done it all that much since I had a full time job back then, but now that I’m working for myself I have a bit more time to do some EMR speaking engagements.

For those interested in bringing me out to speak to their organization, I’ve created an EMR and HIPAA Speaking page. I’ve included a short bio (first time I’ve posted that) on that page along with a sample EMR stimulus presentation that I did last year. If you’re interested, please send me a note on this contact page.

EMR Advertising
In other news, there has been quite a bit of interest in the top 2 ads on EMR and HIPAA. Both of those ads become available starting July 1. In order to fill those spots the most fair way possible, I’ve decided to open up the bidding for those top 2 ad spots. Basically, the ad spots will go to the most attractive bid. As before, current advertisers will be given priority if 2 bids are similar. If you’re interested in participating, let me know and I’ll keep you in the loop.

I also want to welcome a new advertiser to EMR and HIPAA:
MedicalVar.com – This website connects medical professionals to Value Added Resellers (VARs). The only way you can buy Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical version is through a VAR. So, MedicalVar.com is a service to help you locate a VAR for DNS Medical.

Thanks for renewing also goes out to long time advertiser EMR Consultant and MD-IT who advertises on EMR and HIPAA & EMR and EHR. Check out more details about advertising on EMR and HIPAA.

EMR Jobs
Finally, I don’t think that many realize that EMR and HIPAA has an EMR job board. Only costs $30 to post to it and it gets exposure on both of my EMR sites. For example, here’s a job that was just recently posted to it:
Healthcare Practice Manager, Program Manager with HIPAA / 5010

P.S. I’m leaving town next week for a scout trip where I won’t have internet access. If someone would like to guest post while I’m gone let me know. Otherwise, I’ll try to write ahead and schedule the posts to appear. I’d hate for people to go without their daily dose of EMR and HIPAA.

400 Posts Later and a Few Personal Musings

I’ve had on my list to do a nice post talking about all the people suggesting how meaningful use should be defined. Unfortunately, I’ve been sidetracked by a number of projects in my life. Not the least of which is a website about EMR and EHR that I’ll announce officially on this website shortly. Hopefully I’ll have the time to do a full fledge post on defining meaningful use very soon. I’ve been collecting a lot of perspectives on meaningful use and so it just takes a lot of energy to sort through them all.

The other thing that has really taken my time was this presentation about EMR that I did today at a local medical school. You may remember that I asked for some help in preparing a quality EMR presentation and so I wanted to thank all those who contributed to my presentation. It’s really amazing how much better the readers of this website can make me look in a presentation or article that I’m doing. I must admit that I really enjoy doing presentations and I love talking about EMR. So, it was a lot of fun. I think next on my wish list is to be invited to present at some EMR related conference or even better would be to take part in a panel at some conference.

What I did find really interesting with the medical students was what it was like to explain the HITECH Act and $18 billion of EHR stimulus money to a bunch of students. They were all just laughing at the way the HITECH act is set up and trying to promote EHR usage. I was laughing myself thinking about how silly it sounds when you talk about why a doctor might not want to worry about the possible EHR stimulus money. I don’t think they were fooled by the pile of EHR stimulus money.

What’s really amazing is that I just checked and this will be my 400th post on EMR and HIPAA. I don’t usually sit there and look at how many posts I’ve done. I just try to create some good content that people will find useful. Then, I look back and think about what 400 posts involves and I must admit that I’m pretty proud of what I’ve created here.

I also find it funny that while this will be my 400th post to this blog, I still have 168 drafts of ideas that I just have never had the time to post about. I really should go back and see what’s in there. I rarely ever look past the last 10-20 draft posts. I’m sure there’s some real gems that I just never found the time to write about. So, if you start seeing some references to older items, then you’ll know I’m just doing some spring cleaning on the blog.

I’ve got a lot of other things I’d like to do with this blog including creating some really pointed e-books on EMR implementation, EMR selection, EMR features, EMR consultants, etc. I also hope to have some more time to flesh out the EMR, EHR and HIPAA wiki. It definitely needs some more love if you want to participate. I know I’ve used the information a couple of times and it’s starting to grow more and more useful as people add information to the wiki.

Ok, that’s enough rambling for now. Thanks for being a reader and here’s to the next 400 EMR and HIPAA posts.
