Despite my inability to post regularly on this blog as of late, I have still been doing a fair amount of reading about EMR, HIPAA and the the Healthcare IT community. I really think I need to find myself a way to get to the HIMSS conference in New Orleans this year. It would really help me. Maybe my good friends at SensibleVision would have me out there or something.

Enough digression. In my reading I’ve come across another really great EMR blog that’s really putting together some good content. It’s called Innovative IT for Healthcare and done by Calyx. It looks like the blogger is an IT consultant for Calyx that seems to have quite a bit of IT background. One thing I don’t completely understand is why these consultants would partner with Misys. I honestly have personally never used it, but my fellor moderator at EMR Update has compiled a list of people not satisfied with Misys EMR. Despite this interesting decision, the EMR blog is great.

Another blog was also started about EMR, but it seems like it has since been abandoned. That’s unfortunate. It does take a committed blogger to keep it going.
