Thoughtful comments on policies, initiatives or lessons learned bring real value to readers, and us. Complimentary comments are really nice; everyone needs a pat on the back once in a while. And sometimes we get comments that take us to the woodshed. Those aren’t the favorites, but they keep us honest, tell us what we need to hear and make us better reporters.

Each story on Health Data Management’s Web site has a comment box. We populate much of the HDM Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages, but the pages aren’t for us, they are for you.

This blog is my soapbox. Our Web site and social media pages are your soapboxes. You can submit to Greg Gillespie essays and commentary to educate peers and we’ll publish them on the site and promote via social media. Just make sure they are real essays and comments on real issues giving real knowledge, and written by you. This is an amazing time in the health I.T sector. Let’s get some debate going!
