A while back I decided to take a weekend and create an EMR, EHR and HIPAA wiki to go alongside this website. I still think it’s a really good idea that still has yet to be full realized. That said, considering the relatively little amount of effort that I’ve put into the project, we’ve had 53 people make contributions to the wiki with a little over 20,000 pageviews. Not a bad start for a side project.

My favorite page on the wiki is the EMR and EHR matrix of companies. As you’ll see, it still needs some more love, but a couple EMR and EHR vendors are being listed each week. If you see your EMR/EHR not listed in the matrix, then sign up and add it. That’s the beauty of a wiki. Otherwise, you can also leave a comment and I’ll add your EMR company. As everyone contributes I see that page becoming a very valuable resource.

A couple other of my favorite pages is the list of open source and Free EMR and EHR companies. I’m sure that’s missing some of the players in this area, but still is a popular resource. Considering the current economic situation and unemployment rate, I also love this page listing a bunch of the various EMR, EHR and HIT jobs websites.

Also, a relatively new addition to the site is this Glossary of EMR, EHR, HIT and HIPAA terms. It needs a little formatting help, but represents a lot of work trying to help those new to the healthcare IT field.

Anyway, I hadn’t talked about it for a while and so I wanted to point it out to everyone and encourage people to contribute to the effort. If everyone helps just a little it will become a pretty good resource for those learning about EMR, EHR and HIT.

EMR and EHR Additions to Wiki

Today is a Holiday for many people, so I thought it was the perfect time to invite people to contribute to the EMR and EHR wiki that I’ve created. It’s really simple to add something to the wiki. All you have to do is register. I would leave it completely open, but I’m trying to mitigate spammers from wreaking havoc on the wiki.

I’m especially interested in getting more EMR and EHR software companies to add their EMR software to my EMR and EHR matrix of companies. I’m planning on working off of that list to start my review of EMR systems. So, make sure you get your EMR or EHR listed so that I can post about your EMR software on this website before all the other EMR vendors out there.

If you are totally against editing the wiki or if you have problems, feel free to submit your EMR’s information on the EMR and HIPAA contact page.

Many of you have been visiting my new EMR, EHR, Healthcare IT and HIPAA wiki. Thanks for visiting it and hopefully the content will continue to grow over time. I believe that it can become a very valuable resource for those looking at selecting, implementing and using an EMR or EHR.

In an attempt to fill out more of the EMR and EHR matrix of companies, I’m looking to get some help from EMR and HIPAA readers. Please, if you are an EMR vendor, an EMR user or are just familiar with a certain EMR software, then let me know about it.

Here’s the information I’m looking to obtain for each EMR vendor (at least as a start):
Company Name:
Software Name:
Latest Stable Version:
Architecture:
Language:
Payment Methodology:
Website:
O/S Compatability:

Feel free to sign up for the EMR Wiki and add it directly to the wiki, leave it in the comments of this post, or fill out the contact us page. If you want to see examples of what I’m looking for just look at the EMR and EHR Matrix for a few examples.
