The top 5: A smashing September

In September, a man cracked open 254 walnuts with his head.

On purpose.

Competitive walnut smashing is a thing, as we reported in September of 2018. Back then, the record was 217.

This guy blows that out of the water. He can’t feel his face, but he won. And that’s all that counts when you’re smashing walnuts with your head.

On purpose.

Now, the news.

The top 5

On a more serious note, as the business world continues to adapt to new realities, three of September’s top-five posts dealt with how leading healthcare organizations are using technology to help deliver the best care possible, in the safest manner. The other two posts were about using digital tools to speed innovation.

I can’t help but feel like they’re all interrelated, as the speed organizations needed to adapt to the changes of 2020 was incredible. The same goes for the software systems they rely on.

The world didn’t stop. In many ways, especially in the tech industry, it actually sped up.

1. 2020 health IT trends revisited

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

2. Digital resilience, simplified: The importance of tech partnerships

We are witnessing a monumental rise of information management and content services capabilities available today that are essential in our digital world. Capabilities like interoperability with other critical systems; secure, mobile applications that users and the marketplace are increasingly demanding; and the ability to reduce data silos.

Organizations need to be able to effectively leverage these capabilities in order to keep up with the speed of digital evolution. And this can be a heavy burden for IT teams who must work with business units to deliver the solutions that will meet their specific needs while ensuring a secure, high-performing, and compliant environment.

This is why it is necessary, now more than ever, to trust in the strength of strategic technology partnerships.
