Good Technology Can Be the Foundation of A Great Operation

There’s increasing evidence that a big -- and long overdue -- shift is happening in how we deliver medical care in this country. We’re seeing growing recognition that the current model incentivizes all the wrong behaviors -- sick care versus prevention and wellness. Virtual health was already very much substantiated pre-pandemic but COVID-19 has made it a must-have. It seems clear telehealth is now here...Read More >

4 Ways Care Teams Can Help Vaccine-Hesitant Patients

Today, 123.9 million people in the US have been vaccinated -- and that number is something to celebrate. But the news of a pause in giving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, due to six instances of a rare blood clotting disorder, is almost sure to give the vaccine-hesitant additional concern.

The Only Way Out Is Through: Looking Back on a Disrupted and Disruptive Year

I am a planner.  This might be why my favorite book is The Art of the Long View. It’s the story of a Royal Dutch Shell strategy team in the late sixties. They were trying to employ scenario planning in advance of a shock to the oil system they knew would come eventually (but not when, why or how). For 72 hours, they locked the...Read More >

Building a Technology Foundation for Patient-Centered Care

I’m Canadian. Growing up, the comment about healthcare was always, “If you have a cold, Canada’s the place to be. If you have a heart attack, you want to be in the U.S.” That’s because the U.S. healthcare system excels at addressing acute problems: cancer, heart attacks, major injuries, you get the picture.
