So it's been a while since I've added to medlogs.com. Here are a few standounts from the 20-or-so recent submissions that I added today. If your blog was submitted but it doesn't yet appear in Medlogs – chances are that you don't have a valid RSS feed (blogmd.net, msspnexus blog, etc) or that our editorial board (me) decided that the weblog has commerce as a primary goal rather than the sharing of information. Some blogs are on-the-edge of this (such as drjohnlapuma.com) and have been added to the "more"section.
- Christina's Considerations focuses on "workplace effectiveness, regional health information exchanges and health information technology, and healthy children and families." She recently posted a sample RHIO executive director job description.
RHIOs are all-the-rage these days – and our area is no different. Trouble is – no one can agree on what a RHIO should be. My concern is that the primary goal of a RHIO – to improve the care of the patient – is often secondary to more selfish goals of an orginazation. Unless the providers ina community cal really agree on the basic principles – a RHIO is not likely to succeed.
- Dr GNU is a podiatrist and has interests in open-source software. Not many posts yet …

- Cosmic Watercooler is a nurseblog:
"I am an RN and I don't know why.
I like it, but the pay sucks.
I have a wonderful family and that's all that matters."
- The Healthcare IT guy and Neil Versel's Health IT Blog are about .. um .. healthcare IT.
- And of course .. there is a new bird flu blog.
There are many more .. and as always – the resident/student blogs offer some of the best ..
