The Healthcare Top 20 Blogs: Thought Leadership on HIT

When we first started Telmediq, we wanted to see know if anyone in the Healthcare IT space was talking about communication problems. To do that we sought out the best Healthcare IT blogs. Over the years, we’ve watched trends shift and new technologies come into play. We’ve watched little problems in communication become big problems in communication. Now, we see many great conversations around important topics: workflow, care-co-ordination, HCAHPS, security, value-based care, the patient as the consumer and the role HIT plays in these topics. 

By continuously engaging with our clients and with these great blogs, we are provided with value and thought leadership from the brightest minds in HIT. We wanted to share with you our list of the best Healthcare IT blogs on the Internet today.
