As a bit of a stir after a pretty dismal financial year, I was wondering the other day just how the blog was comparing in visitor traffic with others in the Australian Health IT space - especially the NEHTA sponsored ones - listed as the top two in this list. It seems the two they are sponsoring are the least used and least popular.
Alexa provides a way to get an independent assessment.
The Australian E-Health Blog space has a range of contributors.
Other than this blog we have the following:
Site Information for ehealthcentral.com.au
Site Information for ehealthspace.org
Site Information for healthbase.info
Site Information for healthintersections.com.au
This is to be compared with AusHealthIT.
Site Information for aushealthit.blogspot.com
I leave it as an exercise for the reader to suggest just why this difference may exist. It does rather seem having an independent view is apparently important!
Maybe is it a lack of readers that leads to frustration and those personal attacks for which at least one blog has become quite boring with?
I also find it amazing that the situation for Nehta.gov is as follows:
Site Information for nehta.gov.au
Only half the site traffic of AusHealthIT? I suspect the figure but that’s what Alexa says. Is this why so few clinicians seem to be aware of the PCEHR I wonder?
