Happy New Year to everyone!

I hope that everyone has had a safe and wonderful holiday season. Mine has been better than expected. I had a wonderful 2012 and I’m looking forward to an even better 2013.

I got a report that had some interesting stats related to EMR and EHR for 2012 that I thought I’d share.

In 2012, there were 300 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 748 posts.

The busiest day of the year was February 14th with 4,885 views. The most popular post that day was EMR and EHR Vendor List.

I really find my list of most popular posts ironic since so many of them were from past years. Luckily most of them are still valid today:
1. Evaluations of AllScripts EMR
2. Great Chart Comparing Meaningful Use Stage 1 with Stage 2 and 3
3. Funny Physician Exam Room EHR Etiquette Video
4. Allscripts May Sell Out to Private Equity Buyer
5. The Advantages of EMR Systems

I’m really proud of the way we covered all that happened with Allscripts this year. That top post has 143 comments on just that post. I think that many in that comment thread have gotten some help from others commenting. It’s been a hard year for Allscripts users. The EHR Etiquette Video is a good laugh if you need something to make you smile.

EMR and EHR has had visitors from 160 countries in all, but the US is far and away the top readership.

I hope you enjoyed the stats and thanks for reading! Here’s to a wonderful 2013!
