When I first started blogging, one of my favorite topics was on health information exchange and RHIOs. It made sense because had been working with RHIOs and data exchange projects and there were still many questions among my peers about the exact definition, how to set one up and overcoming the challenges. One of my blogger friends even referred to me as the RHIO Queen and someone who reviewed my blog said I probably had a bit too much on RHIOs. But, I had written the book on establishing a RHIO.
Since then I've explored applications of other technologies and my path has taken me through telehealth, mhealth, portals and social. Today, some might say I have too many posts on social media.
So, it is with great pleasure that I return to my Health IT roots with this video on Medical Neighborhoods and the key role of health information exchange. What I like most is the blending of the tools that are needed for the future.
