The monthly top 8: August 2020

I don’t like fall. Don’t even get me started about winter. It’s not worth all the anguish.

That’s why I love August so much: It’s the last blast of true summer weather in the northern hemisphere. We can still frolic in lakes, ride our bikes in the sunshine, and mow our lawns. … Occasionally.

August is also the eighth month of the year. So why not celebrate it with the top eight blog posts we published during those glorious 31 days?

Why not, indeed.

The great 8

1. 3 reasons the market is rapidly adopting AP automation

The number one blog post for August – by a longshot – is just over a year old.

Why are people still finding it relevant?

See for yourself. Check out this blog post by Danielle Simer, product marketing specialist at Hyland, to learn three notable market shifts driving the adoption of AP automation.

2. Managing clinical information when telehealth is the new normal

COVID-19 forced healthcare providers to identify new ways to examine and treat patients while limiting the risk of spreading the infection.

Telehealth became the ideal solution, writes Ken Congdon, team lead of solution marketing at Hyland. And it’s here to stay.

Check out his blog post to find ways to enhance your clinical information systems to address new virtual demands and help improve patient care.

3. Tales from treating COVID-19: Building PCs from scratch and implementing software solutions in days

Looking for best practices on how healthcare providers can use technology, ingenuity, and innovation to fight COVID-19? From embracing telehealth to implementing solutions in days instead of months, it’s all about speed, safety, and collaboration.

Check out this post by Tom Tennant, content marketing manager for Hyland Healthcare, to learn how Yale New Haven Health System and Franciscan Health are delivering life-saving patient care while protecting staff members.

4. The impact of COVID-19 on healthcare systems from an imaging point-of-view

“Some organizations have a defined enterprise-imaging strategy, they’re executing on it, they’ve defined governance, and they have a budgeting model,” said Joseph Marion, principal at Healthcare Integration Strategies.

“Others are kicking that can down the road, milking out their existing imaging solutions, continuing to invest in point and specialty solutions, and just thinking the whole thing is going to go away,” he said. “Which it is not.”

To find out how reading-from-home challenges are affecting accessibility to medical images and how the right enterprise-imaging strategy can help your healthcare organization provide improved patient care, check out another excellent blog post by Tom Tennant.

5. 2020 health IT trends: Revisited

All the health IT trends Hyland outlined at the beginning of 2020 – interoperability, artificial intelligence, and cloud adoption – are still relevant in today’s unprecedented landscape. Although, admittedly, these topics are trending for vastly different reasons than we originally anticipated.

As John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

Check out this post to see Susan deCathelineau, senior vice president of global healthcare sales and services at Hyland, revisit these important healthcare trends under the lens of COVID-19.

6. Xander Schauffele wins with trust in his advisors and confidence in the tools in his bag. What’s in your bag? Xander Schauffele's golf bag

Imagine if Xander Schauffele’s caddie, Austin Kaiser – a longtime friend and trusted advisor of the elite professional golfer – handed him the same club every time he approached his golf ball for a shot, whether he was on the tee, the fairway, or the green. That approach wouldn’t work, as each shot is unique and requires a unique tool.

The story of Xander and Austin and their success on the golf course is no different than the story of your organization. In today’s business climate, speed is par for the course, automation wears the green jacket, and you need the right tools to take your best shot.

Check out this great post by Tom Davis, director of specialty sales at Hyland, to find the tools he recommends you put in your Hyland solution bag.

7. How to bake diversity, equity, and inclusion into your software

Think software and websites are inherently accessible?

Think again.

If you’re a developer, you definitely want to check out this blog post by Joe Shearer, a research analyst who specializes in product accessibility and compliance. Joe lists five ways you can grow accessibility to become one of your company’s core values and ensure everyone can use your products or solutions.

8. My Hyland story is a total WIN

One of Hyland’s core values is “our employees are our family.” That was easy to do when we were truly just a family company, back in 1991.

But now, we’re a global organization with more than 4,000 employees and 33 offices in countries around the world.

Check out this post by Wendy Kirton, office manager for Hyland’s U.K. office, to see why she joined Hyland and how she feels our women in network (WIN) group fuels a diverse mix of cultures and age ranges.
