How to determine client needs by keeping a pulse on the market

Many of us pride ourselves on being content creators, producing industry-leading resources. But how do we determine what will be meaningful to our audience? Creating materials that are relevant and fresh to your clients is crucial to success. This requires research, looking at other health IT resources for ideas and information.
