The weekly recap: February 15 | Valentine’s Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day I usually skip.

But not this year. For good reason.

First, the news.

Hyland news

But don’t take my word for it.

“We owe our lasting success as a business — enabling organizations to deliver better experiences to the people they serve — to the tremendous contributions of each and every one of our team members,” said Bill Priemer, president and CEO at Hyland.

  • Health IT interoperability is a huge advancement in care – it transforms clinical workflows, patient care, and public health. Giving your systems the ability to share information improves the ability for staff to make more-informed decisions, which has a remarkable impact on patients.

Read a great use-case scenario about health IT interoperability by Ken Congdon, content marketing manager at Hyland.

  • Not to be outdone, enterprise imaging is also right at the cutting edge of healthcare technology, helping to provide the best patient care possible. The economic and operational benefits of enterprise imaging include streamlined infrastructure management, as well as consolidated control of images outside of radiology and cardiology.

In fact, some healthcare organizations have been able to cost-justify an enterprise imaging investment through the subsequent decommissioning of multiple PACS.

Check out Ken Congdon’s summary of a HIMSS19 focus group on enterprise imaging to see what doctors, CIOs, and CTOs had to say.

  • Australia. I love it. And not just because it has the world’s deadliest spiders, snakes, and jellyfish.

Another great thing about Australia is the fact that its states, territories, and local councils are harnessing the power of digital transformation to make it quicker and easier to interact with government.

See what Terri Jones – marketing principal and Hyland’s government guru – has to say about how to make digital interactions provide the best value for everyone involved.

  • Did you know there were ninjas hiding in the Trojan Horse back in Ancient Greece? Me neither.

Whether we made that up or not, check out this video to find out how a proactive security strategy helps insurers keep the bad guys outside the gates.

Fav thing of the week: Do-overs

  • Between December 25 and February 18, I have three opportunities – four, if you include Valentine’s Day – to do a great job or screw up: Christmas, my wife’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, and our marriage anniversary.

So far this year, I’m batting .500. Great in baseball, not so much in marriage. Therefore, I took advantage of yesterday as a do-over. I won’t get into the specifics, but my wife’s 50th birthday party wasn’t quite up to par. My incredible grasp of the French language might have had something to do with it. Regardless, dinner on the beach somehow turned out to be wings and ketchup.

So this year, my wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day. I hope you had a good one.

Have a fantastic weekend, y’all!
