Another year has gone by, and it was definitely not an ordinary one. It’s safe to say that 2020 will be a year that everyone will remember. From an almost year-long global pandemic, to protests calling for racial justice, to economic recession, to a presidential election, and now a newly developed vaccination, 2020 is one for the history books. However, we still worked hard to provide readers with informative blogs and articles that they could rely on. Here are the Top 10 blog posts of this year for you to dig into again and share:

9. How the COVID-19 Pandemic Is Affecting Children’s Hospital Operations

Wrong. In this blog post, we examine how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting children’s hospital operations and how healthcare analytics can help out.
10. Using Artificial Intelligence to Help with Mental Health
