You know you’re a true blogger when you write a post for a holiday like Thanksgiving. Luckily, blog software is so good these days that I wrote this well before Thanksgiving and then just scheduled it to appear. So, I’m likely either: eating, watching or playing football or eating if you’re reading this on Thanksgiving Day.

I just thought that it would be fun to list a number of things that EMR and HIPAA is thankful for:
My Readers – You are all phenomenal and teach me as much as anything.
My Advertisers – Getting paid something to do this is beneficial. Hopefully it’s as beneficial for you too.
Obama’s EMR Stimulus Money (HITECH) – Let’s just say that Obama’s EMR stimulus has worked great for this site
EMR Update Forums – Really was a great way for me to learn about EMR software when I was first starting. Not to mention the traffic from that site kept this site going when I first started.
WordPress – Best blogging software out there. In fact, great for pretty almost any website. Did I mention it’s free?
Other HIT Bloggers – Most are listed here. Nothing like starting an interesting conversation between 2 blogs. Man, I’m such a nerd. Oh well…
My Wife – She deserves all the credit for letting me do this in my “spare” time.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
