I know. I’m a little late to the party. Ironically I created the first mobile version of EMR and EHR about 3+ years ago, but the options that were available weren’t very good and so I abandoned it and went back to the general theme. Plus, phone sizes got so big that I’ve always felt like most websites could be viewed on a modern smartphone without issue.

The people at Google (who are much smarter than me) have chosen otherwise and have started penalizing websites (in their search ranking) that aren’t mobile optimized. I still don’t think it’s a huge deal for my readers since only 10-15% of them read it on mobile devices and a big portion of that is on an iPad or tablet which is large enough to enjoy the normal website. Plus, an even larger portion of the EMR and EHR readership reads it in their email and that’s optimized for mobile already.

Of course, now that you’ve heard my excuses for why it took so long to create a beautiful mobile version of EMR and EHR, I’m happy to say that I’ve finally bit the bullet and rolled out a nice mobile theme for EMR and EHR. In fact, if you’re reading this post on your mobile device, then you’re experiencing the mobile optimized goodness already.

I’m still working on a few more changes to the mobile version of EMR and EHR, but I think you’ll enjoy reading our great content on your mobile device much better now. Let us know what you think in the comments. We’re happy to hear any problems, suggestions, and any praise (who doesn’t like a little ego stroke?) you have about the new mobile version of the site.

Above all else, thanks so much for reading and all your support!
