We're saying goodbye to Insights. This is our very last Insights show on the Academy channel. Before you think we left you without access to This Week Health's archived episodes, we have switched these episodes over to our Conference Channel for your convenience - https://www.thisweekhealth.com/this-week-health-conference/ These episodes will be under their new name: "Highlights". All the content you love, with easier navigation.

Hello and welcome to another episode of Insights. My name is Bill Russell. I'm a former CIO for a 16 hospital system and creator of This Week in Health IT. A channel dedicated to keeping health IT staff current and engaged. I want to start by saying thank you. Thank you for being a part of our insights show and being a subscriber to the insight show.
As you know, when we started the show, what we were trying to do is to take. Some of the great conversations we've had over the last five years and take those specific topics and bring them to the forefront and create a channel where you can come to be educated. Now, one of the things we talk about on our show all the time is making decisions based on quantifiable numbers and information.
And so what we did is we took a look at the show performance and history so far. And what we've seen is that our conference channel continues to grow and our news channel continues to grow. And our community channel is growing really well. But this channel is, is pretty well stagnated at this point.
And so what we've decided to do is we're going to be closing this channel itself down. But we're going to be taking this kind of. And we're going to continue to produce this kind of content and we're going to move it over to the conference channel. So if you want to continue to capture this kind of content, go to this week health conference and you can continue to hear these types of.
But what we're going to be doing in the process is as the team got together and we said, all right, we've got to do things more efficiently. We don't have unlimited resources and time. So we want to be more efficient about what we're doing. And one of the things we keep getting requested from you and our community is that you want us to organize the information, to make it easier for you to.
And so we're going to be creating topic pages. We haven't figured out what we're going to call them, but let's just call them topic pages for now, maybe on cybersecurity, on staffing and hiring, maybe on interoperability, you name it well, we'll create those kinds of pages. And then as we publish, what used to be called the insights? We will now be calling it highlights. I believe on the conference. And as we publish those, we're going to be placing them into the topic pages that is relevant to that specific topic. So if you ever want to research a specific topic like interoperability, you go to that topic page and you might have 10 to 15 of the highlight shows there.
Which will make it easier for you to find the segments you're looking for and get the insights from the industry leaders that we strive to bring forward. As you know, our mission is to amplify great thinking to propel healthcare forward. And that is what we're going to try to do by organizing a little better than we have in the past.
So again, we want to thank you for being a part of our insights show Check out this week health conference for the interviews on Friday, but also for the highlight shows, which will be a continuation of this content just on a different channel. 📍 So check that out and again, thank you. We appreciate it. And that's all for now.
