1. What does physical transformation have in common with digital transformation?

By Taylor Joffrion, product marketing specialist

Taylor Joffrion is a great guy. He’s also the kind of guy you look at and think, “That guy’s in shape.” But apparently, it wasn’t always that way.

The number one post of the year by a longshot, Joffrion takes you through his physical transformation and details the similarities of his process with digital transformation. The key, he says, is going beyond the right equipment and partnering with the right people – experts who care about your results.

2. Take charge of photos captured in your Emergency Department

By Phil Wasson, healthcare industry manager

healthcare enterprise imagingHDOs are under tremendous pressure to provide high-quality care with fewer and fewer resources, so using a personal device to capture an image or video to support diagnosis is common.

“But stand-alone solutions for these functions can be extremely problematic,” noted Wasson, “because they don’t always provide the enterprise interoperability to get the photo or video image to the right person, in the right format at the right time. Unless the ED and the HDO have a method for properly capturing, indexing, storing, sharing, and securing images captured on mobile devices, there is no real way to know how this content is being used and managed.”

3. 7 considerations for healthcare interoperability

By Kate Barney, former healthcare industry manager

It’s a challenge that’s worth the work and a post that’s worth the read, because, as she noted, digital health technologies, technology standardization, and interoperability are the fundamental enablers for delivering connected health services.

4. Enterprise imaging’s role in AI

By Ken Congdon, product marketing specialist

“Artificial intelligence can’t learn without enterprise medical imaging,” said Congdon.

To achieve optimal results, healthcare providers must first build a comprehensive patient portrait that includes discrete, semi-structured and unstructured medical information. Therefore, enterprise medical imaging technologies that connect disparate semi-structured and unstructured content to enterprise systems like enterprise health records are essential to properly feed AI, machine learning, and predictive analytics initiatives.

5. 3 ways AI is revolutionizing data capture

By Jaclyn Inglis, product marketing specialist

Automated data capture technology already increases workplace efficiency and decreases business costs. But intelligent data capture is even more powerful, notes Inglis, when you leverage the power of artificial intelligence and robotic process automation.

With intelligent capture software, you teach the AI-driven “engine” by example – like training an intern how to perform a data entry task. And, like a motivated intern, it will quickly pick up on contextual information and learn to interpret patterns and features in different document types.

Clearly, AI is a hot topic. Read Inglis’ excellent post to learn the three ways AI is changing data capture with classification, extraction, and validation.
