Day 8: We’re making a list of lists and checking it twice


On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, eight lists for listing…

Day 8 of our 12 Days of Christmas Posts has the maids a making their lists and checking them twice. But don’t worry, you won’t have to milk it, we highlight lists throughout the entire year as well in our recurring Lists Posts. However, if this is your first encounter with our Lists Posts don’t worry, there’s no use crying over spilled milk. Just sit back, grab a cup of warm milk, and enjoy our top 8 picks.

Our first list comes from Healthcare Informatics (@HCInformatics), a CIO-level publication specializing in issues of system selection, project management, enterprise integration, change management & budgeting. Their 2016 Healthcare Informatics 100 list is as familiar as walking the exhibition floor at the HIMSS Annual Conference.

Modern Healthcare (@modrnhealthcr) lists the 100 companies and organizations that have been named to its Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2016. The recognition program, now in its ninth year, honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry that empower their employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services. We’d like to send shout outs to #13 Hayes Management Consulting (@HayesManagement), #39 Indiana Health Information Exchange, #40 Health Catalyst (@HealthCatalyst), and #68 Galen Healthcare Solutions (@GalenHealthcare).

santalist2We love a good, strong woman list and Health Data Management (@HDMmagazine), who reports on the real-world challenges of health IT leaders and the shifting environment in which they work, has not let us down this year. They have selected 75 of the Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT. The awards are broken into three categories: thought leaders, provider/payer executives, and CIOs/IT leaders. Healthcare De Jure’s Matt Fisher had the pleasure of interviewing Tamara St. Claire, one of the Thought Leader Honorees while Justin Barnes interviewed another, Mariann Yeager in his show, This Just In.

Since July we have run a regular feature on Healthcare Now Radio called The Friday Five. Every Friday we list five articles that relate to a current event, theme, awareness, or celebration. Our Friday Fives have covered everything from breast cancer, childhood obesity, and World Alzheimer’s Day to healthcare and the election, back to school, and the family fruit and veggie challenge. Our posts keep you connected to what is happening throughout the healthcare community and what you can do to be a part of it.

We can’t have a list of lists without something from Becker’s (@BeckersHR) and we can’t have a list of lists without highlighting the latest healthcare apps. This next list has brought it all together for us. It seems like every week brings news of a new healthcare startup company whose app garnered millions in early funding. Not all of these apps will take off, and many are still vying to snag the dominant spot in their respective categories. Here are 50 of the most-talked about, most-downloaded apps to know for both patients and providers.

While doctors are among the most highly paid, educated and celebrated professionals in the U.S. it seems some states show their appreciation better than others. In order to help doctors make the most informed decisions regarding where to practice, WalletHub’s (@wallethub) analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 11 key metrics. You may be surprised by the results, ahem, New York.

HIPAA violation fines are no joke and can be quite expensive costing practices tens of thousands of dollars per violation. It’s important for medical practices to ensure they are HIPAA compliant at all times and while all possible HIPAA violations should be considered potential threats to your medical practice, some are more common than others. Group One Health Source (@GroupOne_Health), an end-to-end billing services solution, has combined a list of the top 10 most common HIPAA violations, and some advice on how to avoid them.

Congress is currently considering a comprehensive, bipartisan medical innovation package to accelerate the discovery, development, and delivery of safe and effective cures for patients, including important administration priorities associated with precision medicine and cancer. Leaders representing patients, industry, and the federal government joined the Bipartisan Policy Center on November 17, 2016 for a
discussion on priorities for medical innovation in the coming weeks. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, M.D., PhD offered the top ten areas where he thought—with appropriate resources—the U.S. could see groundbreaking advances that would “take one’s breath away.”
