Thankful for Amazing Support

Posted on December 2, 2013 I Written By

John Lynn is the Founder of the HealthcareScene.com blog network which currently consists of 15 blogs containing almost 6000 articles with John having written over 3000 of the articles himself. These EMR and Healthcare IT related articles have been viewed over 13 million times. John also manages Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today, the leading career Health IT job board and blog. John is co-founder of InfluentialNetworks.com and Physia.com. John is highly involved in social media, and in addition to his blogs can also be found on Twitter: @techguy and @ehrandhit and LinkedIn.

I’m so excited. Things are coming together for a really big announcement next Monday. I’m really excited about what we’ve put together and I think many readers will be interested in it as well. I’ve leaked the idea a little bit on Twitter, but I should be able to announce a lot more details next Monday. Watch for that next week.

Until then, it seems really appropriate at this time of Thanks to take a few seconds to recognize the many sponsors who support the work we do here at EMR and HIPAA. It’s been a really great 6 months and we’ve received a lot of amazing support. In fact, I’m really pleased by the variety of healthcare IT companies that are supporting the work we do.

I hope you’ll take a second to look over these new and renewing sponsors to see if they can help you solve some of your pressing issues.

New Sponsors
interfaceMD – This EHR company is quite unique. Rather than try and explain their unique approach to EHR and EHR implementation, take a second and watch this video interview I did with interfaceMD CEO Joel Kanick. I think many of the things he shares will resonate with small practices out there. Joel and interfaceMD have taken a really holistic approach to implementing an EHR and all the IT in between. Check them out if you want to see what I mean.

Proven Backup – One of the biggest risks of any EHR is not having a proper backup. Unfortunately, many don’t pay attention to their backup plans until it’s too late. The best way I’ve seen to solve this is to do a mock situation where your database is corrupt. What will it take you to restore from backup? Do you have a backup that works? The beauty is that there are relatively inexpensive backup offerings like the one from Proven Backup. Done correctly, your EHR backup can be much more robust and less risky than paper ever could be.

Colocation America – One of the major features of all healthcare IT is the need for some sort of hosting. Colocation America offers a wide variety of hosting options for applications and organizations of all sizes. As a past server admin and data center manager myself, I can’t ever imagine building my own data center again. The service a hosting company like Colocation America provides is impossible for small organizations to build on their own and is likely out of reach for even the largest organizations.

HealthFusion – Some might not recognize this name, but might be more familiar with HealthFusion’s MediTouch EHR software. If you want to find out what’s unique about Health Fusion, check out this interview with HealthFusion’s Co-Founder and CEO. I was really interested with HealthFusion’s efforts to incorporate the native iPad interface in their EHR very early on. I don’t know many other EHR vendors who can say that “every EHR function that can be performed on the desktop can also be performed on the iPad.”

Doc Halo – HIPAA secure texting is starting to hit healthcare in a really big way. Many in healthcare have found the value of a simple text message communication. However, every healthcare compliance department is scared about the HIPAA implications of such text messages. The answer to this is to empower the end users to have the simplicity of a text message, but done on a secure platform like Doc Halo. If you want to learn more, the Doc Halo CEO has been contributing a number of blog posts on the subject as well.

gMed – If you are a gastroenterologist, then you need to take a look at gMed’s EHR solution. I’ve always been a fan of the specialty specific EHR software. They can offer a unique experience that gets washed over by most of the EHR vendors who want to apply a one size fits all approach to EHR. If you’re interested in Gastroenterology, you’ll want to check out this excellent whitepaper on the Future of Gastroenterology.

The Breakaway Group (A Xerox Company) – Many of you may recognize this company since they’ve been doing a monthly series of blog posts called Breakaway Thinking. You can expect a lot more amazing content on EMR and HIPAA from the talented people at The Breakaway Group. They have a lot of first hand experience with EHR training and ICD-10 training. Being on the front lines provides them some really interesting insight into the industry.

Renewing Sponsors
I’m always thankful for the ongoing support of our renewing sponsors. So, a big thanks to all of the companies listed below for renewing their support of us. It’s great to look over so many of these companies who have been supporting us for so many years. Here’s to many more years working together.
Ambir – Advertising since 1/2010
Amazing Charts – Advertising since 5/2011

Great EMR and HIPAA Supporters

We have a number of really big announcements we’re going to make in the next month. One of them I can’t really mention, but the other is a Healthcare Marketing and PR Focused conference in Las Vegas (of course, since I live in Vegas). I’ve floated this conference idea to a couple healthcare marketers and their response has been nothing short of amazing. I think they’re really excited to go to a conference which helps them do their jobs versus going to conferences to market their company. Watch for the official announcement to come out soon. Plus, the other announcement I can’t talk about is even more exciting for the network.

With that said, Healthcare Scene (which EMR and HIPAA is a part) is doing really well. We’re well over 12 million pageviews and over 6500 blog posts since we started blogging on EMR back in 2005. I want to take a second to thank all those organizations that support what we do. Some have just started working with us and then there are many who have been supporting us for a lot of years. Either way, their support is always appreciated.

If you enjoy the content we create, I hope you’ll take a second to check out these EMR and HIPAA supporters. Their support keeps the lights on.

New Supporters
interfaceMD – One of the things I like about how interfaceMD looks at the EHR market is that each installation needs some custom work to match the unique needs of a doctors office. To use the oft quoted phrase, if you’ve seen one clinic, you’ve seen ONE clinic. I’ll be doing a G+ Hangout with the interfaceMD President and CEO, Joel Kanick where I’m sure we’ll explore this topic more.

DrChrono – A lot of EHR vendors talk about their iPad EHR application, but there are few EHR vendors that have created an iPad first EHR application. That’s the way DrChrono has approached the development of their EHR. Plus, they offer a free version where you can give their EHR a test drive before you buy. Just download the drchrono EHR on your iPad and try it out.

gMed – I’ve often written about the value of specialty doctors purchasing a specialty specific EHR. If you’re looking for a Gastroenterology EHR, then you should check out gMed. Plus, they’ve even put out this free whitepaper called Independent Gastroenterology: A Look into the Future. It’s a good example of their deep understanding of gastroenterology.

The Breakaway Group (A Xerox company) – This company takes a really unique approach to EHR and ICD-10 training. Plus, I love that they have deep roots in researching the most effective leaning techniques which they then use to refine their product. So, I’m excited to have them contributing to a monthly series of blog posts that we’re calling the Breakaway Thinking Blog Series.

GNAX Health – As healthcare IT continues to be implemented, I’m seeing more and more organizations looking at their disaster recovery plans using an external data center. GNAX has a whitepaper called Healthcare IT Disaster Recovery: 9 Steps to Help Target a Reliable DR Datacenter where they cover some of the challenges associated with finding the right disaster recovery data center. The time to prepare the disaster recovery is now and now when the hurricane is bearing down.

Renewing Supporters
These organizations have renewed their support of EMR and HIPAA. It’s always appreciated to see these companies renew year after year.

Healthcare IT Marketing

I’m often surprised by people’s reaction when I say that I’m a blogger. Most then believe that it must be a part time thing that I do for fun at nights. While it started that way, blogging is my full time job. If it weren’t for a large number of companies who’ve supported my work over the years, I’d probably have one blog that I’d post to a couple times a month. I can’t say how much these companies support means to me.

As my blogs have grown and the industry has changed (when I started people didn’t even know what a blog was), I’ve been working to evolve with the industry. While display advertising still does quite well for me and my advertisers, there are a number of shifts happening in healthcare marketing. That’s why I launched Influential Networks, an EHR Job board, EMR and EHR whitepapers, email blasts, and a number of other projects I’m still working to officially launch like my EHR and Health IT video series.

There’s a lot happening when it comes to healthcare marketing, and next week as part of my EHR and Health IT interview series, I’m going to be doing an interview with Don Seamons from Lumeno Marketing and Shahid Shah from Influential Networks. More details on that to come, but it should be a really interesting conversation on the changing healthcare marketing landscape.

With everything I do, my goal is to provide value to everyone involved. For example, those reading the site get value from the free content that’s available to them and also get introduced to companies they may not have known about otherwise. Those companies that advertise benefit from exposure to people reading the content we create. I don’t always nail this perfectly, but I’m sincere in my efforts to provide value all around. Plus, whenever there’s a financial interest involved in something I’m doing, I try to make that clear to the reader. That way everyone knows any bias I may have and can make their own judgement on the content I provide.

With all of this in mind, I want to take a second recognize the new and renewing EMR & HIPAA advertisers.

ZH Healthcare – As most of you know, my blog run on the backs of many open source software products. So, I’m really glad to have an open source EMR company supporting EMR and HIPAA. ZH Healthcare is built on the back of the most successful ambulatory EHR software to date, OpenEMR. If you want the flexibility of an open source EHR, check them out.

Caristix – I love the tagline from their ad, “HL7 interfacing 50% faster.” I think that pretty much describes what Caristix offers to those in healthcare IT. HL7 is going to be with us for a long time to come, so every institution and company should know a great HL7 company. Check out Caristix if you’re looking to do some HL7 integrations.

Chetu – Rather than me trying to describe Chetu, check out this interview I did with Craig Schmidt from Chetu. You can see the breadth of experience they have developing software for healthcare. If you’re looking to outsource some IT development work, check out Chetu.

Renewing Advertisers
The heart and soul of our support is in our renewing advertisers. So, a big thanks to all of the companies listed below for renewing their ads with us. It’s great to look over so many of these companies who have been supporting us for so many years. Here’s to many more years working together. If you enjoy what we do here at EMR and HIPAA, check out the advertisers below and see if they offer something you’re looking for.
Ambir – Advertising since 1/2010
Amazing Charts – Advertising since 5/2011
simplifyMD – Advertising since 9/2012
Canon – Advertising since 10/2012

A number of other exciting things coming in the future. Thanks to all the readers and supporters of EMR and HIPAA.

EMR and EHR Ads

John Lynn is the Founder of the HealthcareScene.com blog network which currently consists of 15 blogs containing almost 6000 articles with John having written over 3000 of the articles himself.

It seems fitting on Super Bowl week to take a second and look at the advertisers that make what we do here at EMR and HIPAA possible. None of their ads cost $1-2 million like the Super Bowl ads, but if you’re looking for some great Healthcare IT and EHR products then you’ve come to the right place. If you like what we do here at EMR and HIPAA, then take a minute and see the advertisers who like what we do as well.

Also, I have a special ad promotion for new advertisers from now through the middle of February. If you’re interested in knowing the details, drop me a note on our Contact Us page.

New EMR and HIPAA Advertisers
Canon – I can’t imagine anyone reading this needs an introduction to Canon. In the Healthcare IT space they offer a suite of scanners, printers and copiers that are found in healthcare organizations across the country. I even have the Canon imageFORMULA DR-C125 in my house and use it regularly. The need for heavy duty scanners in healthcare isn’t going to go away for a long time. I’m glad to have Canon on board as an advertiser.

iPatientCare – EHR vendors always do well as advertisers on EMR and HIPAA and so it’s great to have iPatientCare as a new advertiser. They provide the full suite of EHR, PMS, PHR, HIE, and Mobile that you could need along with all the important EHR and meaningful use certifications. I see that they’re going to be exhibiting at HIMSS at Booth #5519 if you want to check them out at HIMSS. Plus, I love that their website has an image that says they won 9 TEPR Awards. Many of you probably won’t even know what TEPR is since it’s no longer around. However, TEPR was a conference focused exclusively on EHR (although it was probably called EMR back then since it was before EHR became in Vogue). The fact that they won awards at TEPR shows how long iPatientCare’s been doing EHR.

simplifyMD – I first started working with simplifyMD when they graciously sponsored the New Media Meetup at HIMSS 2012 (The 2013 event will be announced shortly, but save Tuesday, March 5th from 6-8 on your calendar). It was a great event and they were a great sponsor. simplifyMD is a certifed EHR vendor that strives to tailor their EHR workflow to the doctor’s current workflow. Something that dotors love to hear and experience from their EHR. They’re a web based EHR. Plus, they recently came out with these great simplifyMD and EHR cartoons. I’m sure I’ll be featuring more of their cartoons in the future.

Returning EMR and HIPAA Advertisers
Sfax – I call Sfax a returning advertiser because they first started advertising on EMR and HIPAA back in December of 2009. So, they supported EMR and HIPAA back when we were just starting to get some traction. After a short hiatus, they’re back as an advertiser. What many don’t realize is that Sfax handles the faxing for a large number of the EHR vendors out there. While I generally avoid faxing as much as possible, sometimes it can’t be avoided and so I’m always grateful I can just send a fax similar to how I send an email using Sfax. Word on the street is that they have the next version of their software coming out soon. I’m excited to check it out.

Mitochon – Similar to Sfax, Mitochon first started advertising on EMR and HIPAA back in Decmber of 2010. After a short break they’re back again as advertisers. I’ve really enjoyed watching Mitochon mature as a Free EHR vendor (They do offer the full suite of free services: PM, EMR, HIE, etc). When Mitochon first started advertising with me, they were a brand new company with a big vision and lots of ideas, but still a lot of work to do. They’ve come a long way since then with their product and their company. One example of that was in their mobile EHR solution that I wrote about previously.

Renewing EMR and HIPAA Advertisers
A big thanks to all these renewing advertisers. It’s beautiful seeing so many of them supporting us for so long.
Practice Fusion – Advertising since April 2010
EMR Consultant – Advertising since July 2009
Amazing Charts – Advertising since May 2010
Cerner – Advertising since September 2011

I’m very appreciative of those advertisers who support the work we do. As I look at the stats for the advertisers, I’m really happy that we’re providing real value to their companies.

Social Media Day at HIMSS 2012

Today I had an amazing series of meeting with really smart people. Many of my findings from those meetings will be featured in blog posts over the next month after HIMSS. I’ve come across some trends and ideas that I think readers will be really excited to hear about.

However, I’d say that today was marked by social media at HIMSS 2012 for me. Here’s a quick run down of the social media events I participated in.

First, Shahid Shah, the Healthcare IT Guy and Jennifer Dennard joined me in holding the Genius Bar in the social media center. It’s been interesting to see the variety of people that have come by the genius sessions. I think the idea of having a genius bar is a really good one and I think the HIMSS social media staff have liked the idea a lot as well. I can see it really expanding and do even better than we’ve done this year. Although, this isn’t surprising since we through the idea together a week or two before HIMSS.

Immediately after the genius bar, they held the #HITsm Tweetup. It was fantastic fun with so many familiar faces. There was only one main downside to the Tweetup. The internet connection wasn’t working and so I could only do it on my phone. The internet situation has been a problem for me for a lot of HIMSS. I can’t say how annoying it is to try and cover HIMSS and not have a decent internet connection. It’s pretty hit or miss from my experience. I’m not sure why.

Regardless of the internet connection, it was a pretty interesting experience to do a tweetup live. I almost wish it would have been a silent tweetup. Basically, random laughs and what not. Either way though, at least MelSmithJones was thinking inside the box and we got her to think inside the box. #insidejoke


In the afternoon, I participated in a Meet the Bloggers panel with Jennifer Dennard, Neil Versel and Carissa Caramanis O’Brien. I think the audience got some decent information from what was said. I must admit that one thing I loved was looking into the audience and knowing so many people who had come to hear what we had to say. A number of people said some kind things to me about the event which were really appreciated. Although, my favorite part was a lot of the individual discussions I had with so many people after the Meet the Blogger panel.

Then, to top the night off we had the really great 3rd Annual New Media Meetup. I think we had about 120 people show up to the event. The band was admittedly too loud for a really good discussion, but as someone said on Twitter at least they were a good band. A really big thanks to simplifyMD and Ozmosis for sponsoring the event. simplifyMD even stepped up and decided to add some food at the event. They were outstanding to work with and the three people who won Kindle Fire’s from Ozmosis were absolutely excited.

At the core of all the social media mentioned above is: People!

Meeting with and connecting with interesting, smart, unique, talented people is always a wonderful experience and that’s why I love social media.

Healthcare Scene at HIMSS 2012

As many of you know, I posted my HIMSS 2012 session schedule on EMR and EHR a few weeks back. Sadly, many of those sessions have been taken off my schedule, but a number of really good ones still remain. I just counted 27 other meetings with vendors the week of HIMSS. I think it’s fair to say I’m doing my part to see as many as I can to provide you some really interesting coverage.

Outside of that hectic schedule, you’ll also be able to find me at a number of events (mostly social media related):
Meet the Bloggers Panel – This is happening Wed 2/22 4:00-5:00PM at the HIMSS Social Media Center. This will be a fun panel for me with two people I know quite well and love: Jennifer Dennard and Neil Versel. Plus, Carissa Caramanis O’Brien who I don’t know that well, but look forward to meeting as well. If you like social media or blogging, you’ll enjoy this.

HIMSS Social Media Center Genius Bar – I’ll be there Tuesday, 11:30 am-12:00 pm, Wednesday 10:30 am-11:00 am, and Thursday 11:30 am-12:00 pm at the HIMSS Social Media Center. Stop by and ask any question you want. You can make an appointment for it here.

New Media Meetup at HIMSS Sponsored by simplifyMD – We’re almost out of space for this event so I’ve stopped any major promotion of it. It amazes me the wonderful people on the list. Soon I’ll probably have to change it to a wait list signup once we reach capacity.

I also wanted to point out some of the interesting things that sponsors of EMR and HIPAA are doing at HIMSS. I just asked them for info late, so a number of my advertisers haven’t been able to get me anything yet. If they send me their info, I’ll update the post.

REGISTER NOW!!

I’m really excited to announce the 3rd annual New Media Meetup at HIMSS 2012. Last year’s event had an amazing turnout in Orlando and I expect this year’s will be even better with a whole bunch of interesting new and old faces. It’s quite frankly my favorite part of HIMSS thanks to the amazing people who are there.

Everyone is welcome at the event. Maybe you participate in New Media (Blogger, Tweeter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc) or maybe you just enjoy consuming other people’s media (like this blog) or maybe you’re interested in using New Media for yourself or your company. Everyone is welcome to attend and network with others interested in New Media. I’m excited this year to welcome the #HITsm and #hcsm crowd that will be out in full force I’m sure.

If that isn’t enough reason to attend, I’m really happy to have teamed up with simplifyMD to sponsor the New Media Meetup at HIMSS Las Vegas. The event will be on Wednesday 2/22 7:00-9:00 PM at the awesome BB King’s Blues Club in the Mirage Hotel (A short walk across the street from the Venetian/Sands). That’s right: an open bar, Live Music with a dance floor, and amazing people.

UPDATE: Ozmosis has come on board again this year to sponsor the giveaways at the Meetup. They’ve provided 3 Kindle Fire that we’ll give away to 3 lucky people who attend. Read more about Ozmosis and see pictures of the awesome BB King venue for the event on EMR and EHR.

Please register for the event so we know how many to expect. I expect we’ll max out registrations for the event like we did last year, so register now before it’s too late.

Be sure to tell all your Blogger, Twitter and other new media friends about the event so we have the best and brightest in the healthcare IT social media world at the event.

About Our Sponsors
