I’m a little late in posting the stats for this blog, but I thought I’d do it now for posterity’s sake. I previously posted a stats report on EMR and HIPAA and will be doing it on other Healthcare Scene blogs including this one. I think it will tell an interesting story about the progression of the Healthcare Scene blog network over time.

So, without further ado, here are some interesting stats I got from a report on EMR and EHR for 2014.

In 2014, we published 273 new posts on EMR and EHR, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,411 posts.

EMR and EHR was viewed about 720,000 times in 2014. The busiest day of the year was February 28th with 1,484 views.

I’m proud that all but one of the top posts are from 2014. I know Carl spent a lot of time creating #2, so I’m glad that it’s been seen by so many people.
1. 4 Things Your Patient Portal Should Include
2. EHR Product Market Shares Rankings: The Envelope Please!
3. Why ICD-10?
4. Rise of the Digital Patient Infographic
5. Improving the EHR Interface and Topol Saves Patient’s Life on Flight Home

The question that Kyle posed in #3 – Why ICD-10? – is a battle that’s still raging. We’ll see if ICD-10 goes forward and that question goes away or whether it’s delayed again and the battle will rage on. #4 and #5 show the power of a great infographic and Topol saving someone’s life.

EMR and EHR has had visitors from 168 countries in all, but the US is far and away the top readership. Thanks to the 785 views that came from Italy (sorry, I have an Italy bias addiction in case you didn’t know).

I hope you enjoyed the stats and thanks for reading! Here’s to a wonderful 2015!
