Healthcare IT Content The Way You Like It

Posted on November 12, 2014 I Written By

John Lynn is the Founder of the HealthcareScene.com blog network which currently consists of 10 blogs containing over 8000 articles with John having written over 4000 of the articles himself. 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.

As most of you know, I organized my first conference this year focused on Healthcare IT Marketing and PR (HITMC). I’m a few days away from officially announcing the HITMC 2015 event, so more information on that coming soon. One of my big takeaways from the HITMC 2014 event was that people want to consume the content the way they want to consume the content and that it’s powerful to repurpose the same content and display it in a different way.

Many of you have likely been reading Vishal Gandhi’s (@csvishal2222) Cost Effective Healthcare Workflow Series of blog posts that’s sponsored by ClinicSpectrum. I think it’s been a great series focused on many of the needs of practice managers and healthare clinics. However, Vishal and ClinicSpectrum decided to take the series to another level as they’ve repurposed the content in lots of different ways.

For example, they took a blog post on building accountability and consistency into your practice and created this slideshare presentation. They also created this video on the subject. I won’t be surprised to see an infographic on this soon too.

In another example, ClinicSpectrum took this EHR Workflow video interview I did with Vishal and turned it into a 3 part blog post: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. I loved the approach since many people don’t want to sit down and watch a video which has a specific amount of time required to consume the video. However, they’ll happily read through a blog post on a subject that matters to them. While some do prefer the video format because you can hear the inflection in someone’s voice and the energy behind what they’re saying.

At Healthcare Scene, we’re doing everything we can to provide a wide variety of formats to people to allow them to consume the content we create the way they want to consume it. I’d love to hear what you think of all of these various forms of content. Which content format do you prefer? What could we do better? I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the subject.

UPDATE 2: Here’s the post I created based on the interview with Jonathan Bush.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Google+ had a technical issue and we were unable to broadcast or record a video for this hangout. Turns out others have had this issue before even though we didn’t experience it in the tech check we did and the past 15 other times we’ve done it. I did do an interview with Jonathan Bush about the subject just the same and will create a post based on the interview shortly. We apologize for the issue.

Healthcare Scene Videos and 5 Questions with EHR Vendor Executive Raul Villar, President of ADP AdvancedMD

Little by little I’m seeing more and more use of video in the healthcare IT and EHR world. It’s amazing to look at the creative ways that people are using video. I think the movement is so important that I’ve been doing a website dedicated to the EMR, EHR & Healthcare IT videos. There’s a large number of people who subscribe to the email list for the EMR Videos website (you can sign up here if you’re interested) and the traffic to the site is growing at a really nice rate.

I’ve also casually started an EMR and HIPAA YouTube channel where I’ve posted a few videos I’ve done over the years. For example, at HIMSS I did a series of interviews with EHR vendors executives called 5 Questions with EHR vendor executives. In fact, I just uploaded another video in that series where I interview Raul Villar, President of ADP AdvancedMD. I’ve embedded the interview with Raul Villar below:

Along with the YouTube channel of my videos, I’ve also created a Healthcare Scene video playlist where I’ll add videos created by other people. If you look at the playlist now, I’ve added part 1 of a 3 part video interview I did with Nuance Healthcare at Health 2.0 Boston.

I think more and more people are interested in video content. Plus, it’s going to be easier and easier to get your video content across all your various devices. So, people will be watching more and more videos.

What trends do you see with video in healthcare IT and EHR? What other ways should the Healthcare Scene Blog Network be using video? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Meaningful Use Stage 2 Standards Video – Meaningful Use Monday

Self proclaimed Standards Geek for GE Healthcare, Keith Boone, did a good presentation covering the meaningful use stage 2 standards along with briefly covering the meaningful use stage 1 standards and looking at the standards we might see beyond meaningful use stage 2. This meaningful use stage 2 standards presentation was done at the Crossing the Infrastructure and HITECH Meaningful Use Divide conference.

If you’re into healthcare standards, then you’ll enjoy this video. If you get confused or just don’t care about the various alphabet soup standards, then you won’t find this video that interesting or likely useful.

I think this video also illustrates a couple important points. First, healthcare standards are pretty complex. Second, a lot of thought and effort has been put towards these standards. Thanks to meaningful use and the EHR incentive money, EHR vendors don’t really have too much choice on whether to adopt these standards or not any more. Although, as Keith point out, these are just proposed standards. The meaningful use stage 2 feedback period is still open, so I encourage you to provide your comments during this period. ONC does listen to this feedback and do its best to incorporate it in the final rule.

As a side note, if you like EHR and Health IT videos, be sure to check out this EMR & EHR Video website. We just passed the 200th video posted on that site. Plus, I just did some math using our analytics programs and we’ve had about 432 hours of video watched on that site this year.
