When I attended the Practice Fusion Connect conference in San Francisco, I had the opportunity to do a couple interviews for a segment on the XM radio station ReachMD. They’ve posted the segment I did on EMR and meaningful use on their website (Free registration required). In the radio segment I interviewed:
-Camille Williams, practice manager from ENT Associates of South Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia
-Ken Harrington, practice manager from Washington Endocrine Clinic in Washington, DC
-Robert Rowley, MD, chief medical officer of Practice Fusion

It was a fun experience recording something for radio. I learned a bit about radio production and enjoyed interviewing people. If you’re pretty familiar with EMR, meaningful use and healthcare IT, then the segment probably won’t be that interesting to you. However, if you’re just starting to get into EMR, then I think you’ll find some interesting information in the interviews.

Let me know what you think if you listen. Should ReachMD create a healthcare IT and EMR show?

My apologies for not having time to write a post today. It’s been a pretty crazy week with the Mobile Health Conference in Las Vegas and today I had a ton of things to get caught up on. Plus, tomorrow I’m doing a presentation at WordCamp Las Vegas which has kept me busy today. At the conference, I’ll be telling my story of how I went from being a “hobby blogger” to being a full time blogger and the lessons I learned along the way. Obviously, EMR and HIPAA & EMR and EHR play a large role in my successful switch.

WordCamp is a blogger conference for WordPress users, so I focus a fair amount on the various WordPress items I used along the way, but if you’re interested in my story there’s a live stream tomorrow at 10 AM PST. It will be the first time I’ve told my story in a venue like this, so it will be interesting to hear the attendees reaction. Hopefully they get some good takeaways.

We’ll be back this weekend with our regularly scheduled EMR programming. In fact, looks like I’m going to be hitting the airwaves on the physician focused XM radio station ReachMD soon. I believe I’m just going to do a few interviews for them. I mostly look at it as a good opportunity to have a cool experience. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll let you know more details and link the recordings once they go live.
