I found a really cool WordPress plugin which does a summary of the activity on a blog like EMR and HIPAA. 301 posts in 2010 isn’t too bad. The thing I like most about the stats is 1. the consistency and 2. the incredible number of comments people have contributed to the site. In the list of top commenters, I see some familiar names. I also love the list of posts with the most comments. Some really amazing discussions in those posts.

Thank you to each of you that participates in EMR and HIPAA. Have a Happy New Year!
