We all know who Dr. Halamka is at Harvard Medical and most follow his blog, Life as a Healthcare CIO. I had not heard of this site and anyone can join so I did and those who are not physicians are able to read most of the content on the site for information and incentives areas for CMS of course are limited to the physicians. Again being the first time I have seen the site it looks to have “credible” information and there’s already a good size membership online too. If you don’t know who Dr. Halamka is, here’s an interview from HealthSystemCIO in 2011 that will tell you more. BD
