Bill Russell:

This is a reminder that we're taking off during the week of Thanksgiving.

We're going to be back next week,

Bill Russell:

But since I have you here, I want to do a few housekeeping items.

Bill Russell:

My name is bill Russell.

I'm a former CIO for a 16 hospital system and creator of this week in health.

Bill Russell:

It.

Bill Russell:

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.

Bill Russell:

This represents 2,450 minutes.

Bill Russell:

Of health, it related content and some 220 new stories.

Bill Russell:

And about 25 interviews.

Bill Russell:

This is far and away.

Bill Russell:

The hardest thing that I do, probably because of its

Bill Russell:

consistency and creative energy.

Bill Russell:

It's not really the time I do things that take a lot more time, but it's

Bill Russell:

probably the daily aspect of it.

Bill Russell:

If I thought about it.

Bill Russell:

This show is extremely valuable for me, for two reasons.

Bill Russell:

By helping you to stay current on topics that will impact health.

Bill Russell:

It, I stay current on topics that will impact health.

Bill Russell:

It,

Bill Russell:

It makes me a more valuable host consultant and coach.

Bill Russell:

And my hope is that it helps you in the same way.

Bill Russell:

All right.

Bill Russell:

Here's the schedule through the end of the year?

Bill Russell:

No shows this week, the week of Thanksgiving,

I'm going to be recording another one of those shows with the other

Bill Russell:

half of my advisors, we just couldn't get everybody on the same date.

Bill Russell:

And

Bill Russell:

we also have a show with the most interesting stories from news day,

Bill Russell:

which was compiled by my team.

Bill Russell:

They of course have to listen to every episode.

Bill Russell:

So I asked them to choose the stories that they feel are the most impactful.

Bill Russell:

Hopefully next year we'll have some sort of voting process for you to

Bill Russell:

choose the stories., we will see what we can pull together for next year,

Bill Russell:

but suffice it to say you won't be without content to keep you current in

Bill Russell:

health it through the end of this year.

Bill Russell:

One last thing.

Bill Russell:

I wanted to share an exciting announcement for this week in health.

Bill Russell:It starting in:Bill Russell:

We're going to be launching two new podcast channels to bring our

Bill Russell:

community more specialized content.

Bill Russell:

And it's content that's very specific to your needs.

Bill Russell:

Our channel will now include our news channel, which is this channel

Bill Russell:

that you're listening to, but we're also going to take the news day

Bill Russell:

show and drop it into this channel.

Bill Russell:

We're going to have a new channel called community.

Bill Russell:

A channel called academy.

Bill Russell:

And a channel called conference.

Bill Russell:

Let me give you an idea of what that's gonna look like.

Bill Russell:

We will have four different channels on iTunes and Google play and the rest

Bill Russell:

that you can subscribe to and each one will have a specific feel to it.

Bill Russell:

The news channel obviously is this one, and it's about staying

Bill Russell:

up to date on what's going on.

Bill Russell:

It'll include these shows where I talk about a specific news story.

Bill Russell:

It will also include the news day show.

Bill Russell:

Where we have about an hour.

Bill Russell:

Where I have other people on the show and we talk about what's going on to the news.

Bill Russell:

So you get different perspectives on the news.

Bill Russell:

The community channel is something I'm really excited about.

Bill Russell:

We have invited guest hosts to come on and record with people from their network.

Bill Russell:

And our hope there is to get deeper into the topics that are top of mind for you.

Bill Russell:

Security, clinical informatics data, AI digital, you name it.

Bill Russell:

But it's not only going to be me.

Bill Russell:

It's primarily going to be guests hosts and we've already started

Bill Russell:

those invitations and we have a couple of people lined up.

This is really what we consider to be it university.

Bill Russell:

This is where you have somebody coming on board and you want to

Bill Russell:

ramp them up as quickly as possible.

Bill Russell:

We are going to take excerpts from our show over the last five years.

Bill Russell:

The highlights and we are going to put out three shows a week

Bill Russell:

in what we call the insights.

Bill Russell:

Show within the academy channel.

There will be other shows within that education sphere, the academy sphere.

Bill Russell:

But we're starting with a show called insights, three episodes a week.

Bill Russell:

Highlights from our shows over the last five years.

Bill Russell:

If you have somebody who's new to health, it, somebody who's looking

Bill Russell:

to come up to speed somebody who's who you're looking to develop and

Bill Russell:

train and those kinds of things.

Bill Russell:

This is a great channel for them.

Bill Russell:

They're about 10 minutes long each.

Bill Russell:

And a again, highlights from our show.

Bill Russell:

So we've had some amazing guests with great insights.

Bill Russell:

And we want to bring some of that content back.

Bill Russell:

Into the consciousness.

Bill Russell:

For discussion and keep that moving.

Bill Russell:

And then the conference channel.

Bill Russell:

A lot of us get on planes.

Bill Russell:

We travel thousands of miles to go to a conference, to

Bill Russell:

interact with people, to hear.

Bill Russell:

Keynote speakers.

Bill Russell:

To learn about new products and those kinds of things.

Bill Russell:

That's what the conference channel is going to be about.

Bill Russell:

We're going to do those long form interviews.

Bill Russell:

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.
