IHE Most Salient – based on specification use analytics

IHE, especially the IT-Infrastructure domain, has been publishing specifications in HTML format and Implementation Guide format on a new web site — https://profiles.ihe.net.  

This web site is enabled with Google Analytics. Thus there is some data available that indicates which parts of the IT-Infrastructure specifications are of interest. Presuming they are interesting because they are used. Google Analytics data is not perfect, there will be no analytics from people using script blocking Browsers. So, there is likely 25% more activity than the analytics show.

Just looking at the data for May 2022. The first view is that the IHE specifications are of global interest. This is dominated by the USA, but is quickly followed by Germany, Italy, France, India, Netherlands, Austria, China, Canada, and Switzerland.  From the picture, there is interest almost everywhere. Actually, I wonder why not everywhere? 

The next perspective is to just growth over time. So over the month of May the number of users (as defined by google analytics, don’t ask me to explain that) is growing. Fun part of this diagram is the purple line that shows that the readership does indeed, mostly, take the weekends off. 

Last perspective is to simply look at the traffic per page, as viewed as traffic interest per Profile/Specification. So the following is the ranked list of IT-Infrastructure Profiles in the order. I have included some fun graphics. No, I am not going to explain the graphics.  Note that 40% of these are #FHIR ? based.
