8 must-listen health IT podcasts for keeping your ears on the industry

September 30, 2022 |  EHR, CIO, C-level, Healthcare IT


Serving as host of the MEDITECH Podcast, I’m lucky enough to speak with innovative customers and industry luminaries about the future of health IT. While I share in our guests’ knack for having a lot to say about healthcare, listening is what serves me best in my role as host. There is always something new to dig into or a fresh perspective on important topics. In that spirit, I wanted to share other industry podcasts that invigorate my team as we serve such a quickly changing landscape.

MUSE Views Podcast

TJ Temple and the MUSE Views Podcast have been kind enough to have me on to discuss Expanse Ambulatory, genomics, and more. This is an important one to recommend because, in each episode, they tackle many things specific to users of the MEDITECH system.

HIT Like a Girl Podcast

This one has become a quick favorite here at MEDITECH. On each episode, Joy Rios speaks with other women in healthcare about the topics of the day. The podcast also serves as a hub for the large and vibrant community on HIT Like a Girl.

#MindVine Mental Health Podcast

Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences provides a top-notch approach to wellness at their organization, and their podcast is no exception. #MindVine, their video podcast, brings people from all walks of life together for a healthy look at mental well-being.

Healthcare IT Today Podcast

Our friends Colin Hung and John Lynn over at Healthcare IT Today host their publication’s podcast twice a month and engage in informed and genial discussions of the industry at large. This is perfect for anyone who likes their healthcare perspectives with humor, enthusiasm, and honesty.

Coffee with Cookie Podcast

Frederick Health is a fabulous example of a healthcare entity taking responsibility for the well-being of its community. This series of conversations, led by program coordinator and host Cookie Verdi, covers the many definitions of the word “healthy.” Though the stories shared on this podcast may be specific to Maryland, the larger lessons are essential to any organization taking serious charge of its patient population.

Holland Bloorview Podcasts

Canada's largest children's rehab, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, offers two unique series: a podcast dedicated to families and professionals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, and another specific to youth isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. The stories shared on these podcasts are wonderful examples of the human-centric care Holland Bloorview provides to its nationwide community.

Voices in Healthcare Finance

As we all know, there is more to the healthcare picture than just the patient/provider relationship. Voices in Healthcare Finance, from the folks at Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), hone in on topics like value, health equity, and how the bottom line affects innovation.

Becker’s Healthcare Podcasts

Becker’s Healthcare has a robust selection of industry podcasts — providing niche appeal for those who want something more specific to their interests. Becker’s offers a full network of shows, with full series dedicated to topics like pediatric leadership, behavioral health, and many that drill down to the specialty level. It’s an impressive offering, so there’s a good chance you’ll find something to fit your interest.

Once you’ve given these shows a spin, we of course hope you’ll listen and subscribe to the show I host — the MEDITECH Podcast — for transformational lessons from health IT leadership!
