A look back at the topics that you found most compelling this year

We at Healthcare Informatics have been blessed this year with a plethora (some might say an avalanche!) of fascinating developments in the industry to cover for our readers. With federal healthcare reform- and meaningful use-related mandates aplenty, with rapid shifts in the intra-market competitive landscape among providers, and with lightning-fast technology advances all moving forward at once, there was never a paucity of content worth pursuing in 2011.

In that regard, our team has looked back at the topics that you, our readers, found most compelling. So, please find the Top Tech Trends we reported earlier this year: ACOs, clinical intelligence, mobile computing, and the patient-centered medical home.

Also here are a few of the most popular blogs posted by our contributing bloggers this year, on a diverse range of topics, ranging from the Top 10 EMR Installations Mistakes, 17 Killer Interview Questions, HCIT Lessons From Steve Jobs, and what it’s like to attend a unique kind of user group conference. We think you’ll appreciate these pointed and perceptive commentaries on a variety of topics of great industry interest.

Finally, I wanted to let you know of a development that I think you’ll welcome. Beginning early next month, we will be redesigning our website to bring you our content in a fresher, more reader-friendly format. A team of internal experts at our publishing company, Vendome Group, LLC, has been working very hard at preparing this transition, collaborating with us editors to bring you the must-reads in a format we think looks better and delivers the content in a friendlier way. Please allow me to give special “shout-outs” to John Vest and Mark Lindberg, our publishing company’s internal web gurus, and to Dan Timoney, our corporate marketing director, who has helped shepherd our conversion process with expertise and care, and Charlene Marietti, our editorial director, who has truly been a guiding light all along the way. Numerous other publishing professionals have helped support the process internally as well. As at your organization, everything we accomplish here is always a team effort.

We hope you enjoy our new web makeover, and we very much look forward to serving your reading and information needs going into 2012. Meanwhile, from all of us at Healthcare Informatics, may you enjoy the happiest of year-end holidays and a happy and successful new year!

All the very best,
Mark Hagland
