Many of you know that I’m extremely active on social media (see @techguy and @ehrandhit to start). I love the way it can connect people. It’s so powerful. One of the companies that’s done an amazing job with social media for their company is Corepoint Health and their HL7 Standards blog. The blog is most notable for being the home and birthplace of the #HITsm chat. If you haven’t participated in an #HITsm chat, then you’re missing out. Lots of great health IT discussions every Friday.

Along with being the home of the #HITsm chat, the HL7 Standards blog is a great place to find blog posts from voices throughout the #HITsm community. Plus, they recently started doing a series of “20 Questions for Health IT” with responses from a variety of health IT professional. Check out an example tweet and question that was answered by Mandi Bishop (better known as @MandiBPro):

I love the work their doing and I love hearing perspectives from across the industry. I’m going to think about ways I can do something like they’re doing to bring and amplify more of the interesting voices in healthcare IT. Nice work HL7 Standards.
