Non-Acute Care Providers: Accelerating Technology Accelerates Ability to Care – and Generate Revenue
The pandemic changed everything. It accelerated the digital transformation of well, just about everything. While healthcare may have been on its way to embracing technology, today it’s clearly going digital. And that includes non-acute care providers. In fact, any non-acute care providers who are laggards making technology routine in their care processes will likely also lag when it comes to their growth and profits post-pandemic.
4 Healthcare Trends to Look Out For in 2023
As the healthcare industry emerges from an innovation free-for-all, with historic levels of investment in digital health now tapering off, the lines of a new landscape are settling into place. Economic and social factors have driven a radical reorientation, resulting in a more interconnected healthcare industry.
Up-Leveling Medical Device Manufacturing Through Technology
The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) has been a hot topic for the last two decades across multiple industries. Manufacturing leaders recognize an MES’s role in effectively executing manufacturing operations and improving production output. MES is a powerful tool that can deliver process efficiencies, yield improvements, cost avoidances, and ensure that processes are done right the first time.
Zipline and Intermountain Healthcare Begin Drone Deliveries in the Salt Lake Valley, and will Ultimately be Capable of Delivering to More than 1 Million People
Zipline, a global provider in instant logistics and delivery, announced it is beginning deliveries of prescriptions and medical products directly to select Intermountain Healthcare patients’ yards in the Salt Lake Valley area, and that interested customers can sign up to use the service and place orders.
Healthcare Leaders Move to Automate as Many Processes as Possible
Automation is no longer part of healthcare systems’ long-term vision. It is a near-term priority. Eight in 10 hospital decision-makers who participated in Zebra’s latest Healthcare Vision Study say they will automate everything from emergency room (ER) and operating room (OR) orchestration to supply chain management, asset locationing, and staff scheduling in the next year. They don’t have a choice.

The software has the potential to be adopted by healthcare systems globally, as it helps address workforce management and staff shortages, critical issues facing healthcare systems today.
Two State-of-the-Art Technological Solutions Transforming the Role of Dental Hygienists
The rapid disruptions happening on the technology front are fast transforming every industry today. And although healthcare is often called out to be a slow adapter when it comes to innovation, this industry has rather shown speedy growth in terms of embracing technology.
Social media technology connects the dots in the healthcare experience
Few things are as simultaneously fascinating and disturbing as going onto a social media application such as Facebook or LinkedIn and seeing it present a suggested list of potential connections. It can be disconcerting to think that a bunch of algorithms could so accurately predict that out of billions of users these are actually people you might consider a friend. Or that because you liked “Whiplash” you might be interested in these other videos that other fans of that movie enjoyed.
Healthcare 2025: Innovation-fueled growth in health IT a global and sustained trend
If John McDaniel appears tired, please forgive him. He’s also behind on returning his e-mails (and don’t even mention the projects piling up at home). John’s life is emblematic of the stretched-thin state many health IT executives find themselves in today – and there doesn’t appear to be any let-up for these busy folks anytime soon. John is Vice President of the HCI Group (HIMSS’16 booth #6832), a global leader in strategic advisory services and EMR implementation, training and support, and he and HCI are riding a wave of worldwide health IT innovation and expansion that has yet to crest.
Effective billing while raising patient satisfaction: A common sense approach
Billing, even more so than other areas of healthcare, has experienced a steady stream of seismic changes over the past two decades. Payors, providers, patients and regulators have been forced to adapt, again and again, to tremendous alterations to their expectations, participation and operating processes relative to medical billing. As part of our “Countdown to […]
ConCert by HIMSS: Evolving standards and the value proposition for interoperability
Interoperability is HOT. ONC’s Interoperability Roadmap is ambitious. Organizations like CommonWell Health Alliance and the Center for Medical Interoperability, an offshoot of the San Diego-based West Health/Gary and Mary West Health Foundation are doing great niche work through facilitating industry collaboration to advance common methodologies and standards. And the most recent addition, an industry interoperability survey […]

So, we reached ICD-10. Now what happens?
Few issues have dominated healthcare over the past several years more than ICD-10. The angst and gnashing of teeth that so many in our industry displayed when it became clear that ICD-9 finally would be laid to rest now seems like one part Chicken Little and one part Y2K. In my first interview with Amy Amick, […]
Greenway Health: Becoming a key guide toward the future of healthcare
It goes without saying that the past several years in healthcare have been, to put it mildly, chaotic. Emerging technologies, new government regulations and rising patient expectations are just the most obvious culprits of the chaos and the uncertainty that have gripped our industry. While some may say we have experienced a convergence of issues […]
We reached the finish line for ICD-10: Now the race really begins
Well, it is finally happening. Many, including myself, doubted that ICD-10 would ever be mandated in America. Of course, we knew it was going to happen, but, like a freshman in high school considering graduation, it seemed like a distant event that’s difficult to comprehend as a reality. With ICD-9 coming to an end, […]
