From mHealth to EHRs to senior technology to data security, the healthcare technology community has a lot to talk about these days. We see an overwhelming number of dedicated people contributing to the conversation and exploring important ideas and discussions about the shifting landscape of healthcare, the latest technology trends and what it all means for healthcare delivery and patient engagement.

As National Health IT Week winds down, and in honor of all the people sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for health IT, we decided the best way to highlight all this greatness was compiling one super list of the top 50 health IT blogs. The list is a true mix of independent, media and vendor blogs, both well known and probably a few unknown. All provide unique perspectives of thought-provoking and valuable content to the HIT community. We hope you find them useful.
