Day 1 – Let Our 2018 12 Days of Christmas Posts Begin!

Today marks the start of our annual line up of 12 Days of Christmas Posts.

During the next 11 days, we’ll take a look back at some of the biggest news, issues, and trends in the industry.  Our regular contributors will also weigh in on the year that was, as well as offer predictions and advice for the new year.

We’ll also shine a light on our HealthcareNOW Radio programming. Our line-up of shows attracted some of the biggest names and thought leaders in healthcare and we’ll be highlighting the hosts who bring us incredible conversations each week.

As I look back at the year and the work we did, I am amazed by the growth of our radio station. Whether you’re talking about streaming, satellite or terrestrial, to my knowledge, we are the only radio station devoted to healthcare IT, delivery and policy.  The boom in streaming radio and podcasting due to smartphones, smart speakers and plug-and-play in cars, has had a huge impact.  At the end of the day though, it is our hosts, and the tremendous work they do, that has made the biggest impact.  In 2018, we grew the station to 16 shows. The result of this growth is that our live streaming station will hit 300,000 listeners this year, and the archives of the on-demand episodes of our shows now average 7,000 plays per month.  Our prediction for 2019 is that we will hit a half million listeners. So a big thank you to our hosts and to our listeners. There is much more in store for 2019!

And now for our traditional 1st Day of Christmas Post. Watch our Answers Media Network team as we run for our lives from this not-so-scary snowman.  To all of our readers, listeners, and followers, we wish you a Happy Holiday Season.
