In April, HIMSS released the results of their 18th Annual Leadership Survey and one of my RHIO friends (who doesn't work in healthcare) wrote to ask me what I thought about the results on page 22. He was surprised to ready that 53% have no plans to participate and 77% don't know, don't participate or have no plans to particiapte in a RHIO.
I told him not to worry, because overall the trend it headed in the right direction and that administrators are still learning about RHIOs. I know this because people find my weblog daily by typing in "What is a RHIO?" and other ask me "What is a RHIO?" when it comes up in conversation.
So, I'd like to know what you think about these statistics. Please leave your thoughts especially if you are one of those administrators finding my weblog because you are looking for the definition of a RHIO.
