These EMR and Healthcare IT related articles have been viewed over 16 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 was going to officially launch my new Healthcare IT blog network today, but got a little bit busy. Plus, it’s Friday, so I think I’ll wait until next week or after HIMSS to officially launch it. It’s going to be really cool and bring out some interesting independent voices in Healthcare IT.

Until then, if you want to see the latest news coming out of HIMSS, you should head over to our recently launched EMR and Healthcare IT news site. It’s been hopping and with my wife’s help it will stay well updated during and after HIMSS with the latest news.

Also, I came across the idea of using Foursquare at HIMSS. I thought that sounded like a good way to start using Foursquare. Plus, then more people will be able to find me in order to win a Free HD TV at HIMSS. So, if you’re on Foursquare, then follow @techguy on Foursquare and you’ll know where to find me. Become my friend so we can connect at HIMSS. I’ll be interested to see how my Foursquare experience could translate to healthcare. Should be interesting.

My flight leaves tomorrow. I can’t wait!!
