Our first Thanksgiving episode. Not as iconic as Friends, not even close. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. See you next week.
Today in health, it no new show. This is a reminder that we're taking off during the week of Thanksgiving. We're going to be back next week, But since I have you here, I want to do a few housekeeping items. 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. We've done 237 shows this year and we will likely end up doing around 245 shows for the entire year. With an average show length of about 10 minutes. This represents 2,450 minutes. Of health, it related content and some 220 new stories. And about 25 interviews. This is far and away. The hardest thing that I do, probably because of its consistency and creative energy. It's not really the time I do things that take a lot more time, but it's probably the daily aspect of it. If I thought about it. This show is extremely valuable for me, for two reasons. By helping you to stay current on topics that will impact health. It, I stay current on topics that will impact health. It, It makes me a more valuable host consultant and coach. And my hope is that it helps you in the same way. All right. Here's the schedule through the end of the year? No shows this week, the week of Thanksgiving, except this show to remind you that there are no shows this week. I will come back next week and do one week of shows. And then we're off through the end of the year, starting back up again in January. We have a bunch of fun shows through the end of this year on our other channel this week in health, it, we have a few end of the year shows. I just recorded a show. With half of my advisors on the most impactful events of 2021. I'm going to be recording another one of those shows with the other half of my advisors, we just couldn't get everybody on the same date. And we also have a show with the most interesting stories from news day, which was compiled by my team. They of course have to listen to every episode. So I asked them to choose the stories that they feel are the most impactful. Hopefully next year we'll have some sort of voting process for you to choose the stories., we will see what we can pull together for next year, but suffice it to say you won't be without content to keep you current in health it through the end of this year. All right. One last thing. I wanted to share an exciting announcement for this week in health. It starting in 2022. We're going to be launching two new podcast channels to bring our community more specialized content. And it's content that's very specific to your needs. Our channel will now include our news channel, which is this channel that you're listening to, but we're also going to take the news day show and drop it into this channel. We're going to have a new channel called community. A channel called academy. And a channel called conference. Let me give you an idea of what that's gonna look like. We will have four different channels on iTunes and Google play and the rest that you can subscribe to and each one will have a specific feel to it. The news channel obviously is this one, and it's about staying up to date on what's going on. It'll include these shows where I talk about a specific news story. It will also include the news day show. Where we have about an hour. Where I have other people on the show and we talk about what's going on to the news. So you get different perspectives on the news. The community channel is something I'm really excited about. We have invited guest hosts to come on and record with people from their network. And our hope there is to get deeper into the topics that are top of mind for you. Security, clinical informatics data, AI digital, you name it. But it's not only going to be me. It's primarily going to be guests hosts and we've already started those invitations and we have a couple of people lined up. If you think you would be good for that, please let me know email@example.com. All right. So that's the community channel and we are looking forward to that. That's gonna be fun. The academy channel. This is really what we consider to be it university. This is where you have somebody coming on board and you want to ramp them up as quickly as possible. We are going to take excerpts from our show over the last five years. The highlights and we are going to put out three shows a week in what we call the insights. Show within the academy channel. There will be other shows within that education sphere, the academy sphere. But we're starting with a show called insights, three episodes a week. Highlights from our shows over the last five years. If you have somebody who's new to health, it, somebody who's looking to come up to speed somebody who's who you're looking to develop and train and those kinds of things. This is a great channel for them. They're about 10 minutes long each. And a again, highlights from our show. So we've had some amazing guests with great insights. And we want to bring some of that content back. Into the consciousness. For discussion and keep that moving. And then the conference channel. A lot of us get on planes. We travel thousands of miles to go to a conference, to interact with people, to hear. Keynote speakers. To learn about new products and those kinds of things. That's what the conference channel is going to be about. We're going to do those long form interviews. We're going to call that show keynote, moving forward. We have solution showcases where we highlight the products that are interesting and coming forward. We're also going to have briefing campaigns on specific topics and those kinds of things. So that is what we're going to be doing next year for channels. For this week in health, it. And we are very excited about it. So, if you want to get ready for 2022, we have a page for you to go out and get subscribed to these channels. You can go to this week. health.com/shows. Just set it up over the weekend. And would love to have you subscribed to all four of those shows.
