I’m thrilled to say that we just passed 30,000 visitors to EMR and HIPAA. It really is something else to think that so many people have come to this site to find out about EMR and HIPAA. I’m really happy to see its success. In fact, I didn’t realize how well I was doing at attracting visitors until I looked at a great Healthcare IT blogger recently posted that since tracking his statistics since September 2004 he just hit 10,000 visitors. Pretty amazing that I just started blogging in December 2005.

It’s been a roller coaster getting it started. Now that I’m a little more established with some quality content in place I have been taking a step back to see where I want to take my EMR and HIPAA blog. I definitely want to work on some of my fixed pages:
EMR and EHR Vendors
EMR vs. Paper Charts
EMR Evaluating and Purchasing
EMR Features
EMR Implementation Ideas

I also want to work more on giving details to those interested on implementing an EMR. I want to start doing my initial vision of reviewing various EMR systems. I’ve already started some of the reviews, but I’ve been debating the best way to review an EMR system in an unbiased and professional manner. If you have any ideas please post a comment so I can have your feedback.

Mostly, thanks for helping me reach 30,000. It’s amazing to me that I have gone from 0 to 30,000 so fast. Espescially since this EMR blog was started as a Christmas whim. Who would have thought I’d love EMR so much?
