For more than four years the HL7Standards crew has worked to build a community centered on all things health IT. With our foundation firmly planted in health data interoperability and standards, we have always found a strong connection to all things related to health technology. Along the way, we’ve encountered thousands of smart, thought-provoking individuals via our weekly #HITsm TweetChats who have helped shape the conversations the industry has about the current challenges of health technology and what the future can and should look like.
To help fast forward this mission, we’ll experiment with an editorial calendar in 2015 to help encourage guest submissions.
For example, in January we’ll designate workflow as the broad theme. It’s an important topic that I’ve found has different meanings to different people, so there’s a lot of fantastic ideas among our readers that I hope will lead to several guest columns. Anyone working with and thinking about workflow is encouraged to submit columns for publication on our site. All topics about how health technology affects, influences, or changes users’ workflow is fair game.
February will be devoted to Meaningful Use. In March we’ll begin looking into health data interoperability and some of the promising initiatives that are making strides toward this important topic.
The reason we’re opening things up to authors outside our regular contributors is because we believe in the power of the greater health technology community and the idea that your intelligence, experiences, and criticisms will move the industry forward.
The editorial calendar will be maintained here and all submissions can be made using the form toward the end of that page. If you have any questions not answered on the editorial calendar page, feel free to tweet me @OchoTex.
We’re looking forward to learning more from you.
