Posted by Teresa Iafolla

Our team at eVisit is always trying to keep up with the latest healthcare news, trends, and issues that matter to physicians. Needless to say, this requires a lot of time reading and doing information gathering on the web.

One of our best online resources for staying-up-to-date are healthcare blogs. Many times, I’ve found myself going back to the same reliable sources — whether it’s the personal blog of a family doctor that recounts daily personal challenges, or a brand-name news source dedicated to breaking down the complexities of new healthcare policy. Healthcare blogs are invaluable to everyone in the healthcare field; with their often unique combination of facts, editorial and personal touch, they let us tap into the myriad voices that make up our healthcare system.

So now we’d like to share our favorite healthcare blogs with you! We’ve scoured the web and pulled from our own favorites to compile this Top 100 Healthcare Blogs list. Each of these blogs is a gem in its own right, whether its strength comes from impeccable reporting, a unique voice, or it's creative resources for healthcare professionals.

Our list covers four main categories of healthcare blogs: practice management, physician-run, health technology, and general health topics and news. Whether you’re a physician, a health IT professional, a med student, or a healthcare exec, we guarantee you’ll find the perfect healthcare blog for you.
