I was recently talking with a client about the healthcare industry and blogging. The healthcare industry is a highly regulated industry, there is very little blogging being conducted by healthcare organizations because of their generally conservative approach to online communications.
Healthcare organizations have only just got into search engine marketing in the last few years. This situation is changing, Hospital Impact is a good example of a blog that was launched in March of 2005 http://www.hospitalimpact.org/index.php and if you review their blog roll on the right hand navigation, there are a number of healthcare organizations and industry professionals participating in the blogosphere. One healthcare leader who is blogging is F. Nicholas Jacobs, FACHE - President & CEO of Windber Research Institute and Windber Medical Center who runs the Winderber Blog.

There is a health IT community site called HITSphere which is a network of health IT bloggers. If you're interested in healthcare information technology or medical informatics, that's a good place to get started.
