Best Journalists and Media Outlets Covering Healthcare and Healthcare Technology Topics
And when I say "best" I mean best for my needs: your mileage may vary and past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Here are some of my primary sources for keeping up to date with all the healthcare and healthcare information technology-related topics and new I find of particular value to me. I’ve listed individuals and companies in no particular order and included their Twitter handle where available.

Twitter List of the above & many others

All of the above healthcare journalists/individuals are included in the following  Twitter list I maintain. There are dozens of others on that list too. Twitter List of Healthcare Journalists 

Media Outlets

Here are the primary media outlets/companies I review for healthcare and healthcare information technology-related topics and information. Most or all of the following have newsletters to which you can subscribe. If I had to choose one outlet over all the others, I’d say it would have to be MedCityNews.

CIO Online  Web Site 

EMR & EHR News Web Site  

FierceHealthFinance  Web Site  

FierceHealthIT  Web Site 

FierceHealthPayer  Web Site  

Health Data Management  Web Site             

Health IT Exchange  Web Site 

Health IT Outcomes  Web Site 

Health IT SmartBrief  Web Site 

The "SmartBrief" outlet has several industry related "sub-sites" and I find the AHIP Solutions SmartBrief  site particularly useful.

Healthcare IT News  Web Site   

iHealthBeat  Web Site        

So I'm sure I missed a few and will loop back to add those later on. If anyone has any others I should be considering, please forward them to me.



  1. Excellent list. Thanks for compiling it!

  2. Nice list - here are a few hundred good ones to get you started :-)

  3. @Brian..thanks. And this list I made was of those dedicated to "healthcare journalism." There are good people on your list and others like it but this list is the list of those I consistently get the kind of things I'm looking for from.
