This may turn out to be the smartest or dumbest idea that I’ve ever tried here on EMR and HIPAA. Although, I’ve never been one afraid to try something and look stupid. I think that’s one of my greatest strengths. I’m willing to try something crazy even if it doesn’t work. Of course, many times it turns into something really great. Hopefully this turns out to be the later.

I’ve been seeing so many people doing video and so many people interested in video. So, I decided I’d give it a try. I’m attacking EMR video in 2 different ways. First, I’ve launched a new EHR, EMR and Healthcare IT videos website. We’ve already posted 32 different EMR and EHR videos to the site and it’s seeing some great traffic. Of course, if you know of other videos you think we should post to the site, please do let us know. We’ll keep on posting the best EMR, EHR and Healthcare IT videos that we find.

The second part of this plan is that I’m planning to make a number of EMR related videos myself. In my true boot-strapper style they won’t be huge productions. Instead, they’ll focus on the content (like I do on this blog). At first, I’m planning to do the videos in a question and answer style. I’ve already got a number of questions from Twitter and a previous post I did, but feel free to post other questions you’d like me to answer in the comments of this post.

Plus, I figured I might as well go all in and do the video live. That’s right, I’ll be broadcasting the video I create live to my EMR and HIPAA uStream channel. I’ll be starting the video tomorrow (5/24/11) at about 2 PM PST (5 PM EST). So, feel free to connect to the live streaming video of me answering questions. Plus, when you connect you can ask questions of me live. Hopefully a few of you show up so that I’m not just talking to myself. Of course, if you don’t then I’ll try to still post the video after the event as well.

In fact, I tested out the system today and recorded this video. Excuse the t-shirt and baseball cap. Tomorrow I’ll see if I can upgrade the wardrobe a little bit.

What do you think of this idea? Is it insane? Do you like it? Are you looking forward to the free advice and consulting?
