I've been asked to get involved in a few international medical consulting projects recently. Specifically, one involved medical tourism in Asia. Cosmetic procedures are especially popular. The second project involves a government health agency in Europe.
Both projects are very different, however both involve several key elements of health information technology, web development, and health information exchange or HIE. Although I live in the United States, it's always interesting to hear about health projects in other countries. Let's see what happens over the next few months.
What's interesting is that both of these opportunities presented themselves because of my presence on the Internet. One guy found me by searching on Google. Another guy approached me because I was tweeting about health IT and smartphones. Then, when he saw my blogs, he realized that we had several things in common. By expanding your presence online, you could reach potential clients who might never find you otherwise.
