The weekly recap: Friday the 13th, part 2

For those of you scoring along at home, this is our second Friday the 13th of the year. When we last visited the scariest-date-in-the-world, I mentioned that the term for fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.

Friggatriskaidekaphobia. What a great word. Take a second to say it aloud. … Maybe even more than once. We’ll wait.

After you figure out how to say a word with 10 vowels in it, have a look at what we were up to this week.

The Hyland Blog

  • What does physical transformation have in common with digital transformation?

Check out the comparisons Taylor Joffrion makes as he takes a deep dive into his physical transformation from 6’2” and 135 pounds to a lean, mean, 200-pound burger-crushing machine. Because, with a lot of effort and a little help from experts, your organization can do the same.

  • “Open the pod bay doors, Hal.”

If that’s how you feel about artificial intelligence, you should read Jaclyn Inglis’ fantastic post about three ways artificial intelligence is revolutionizing data capture. As she notes, artificial intelligence has already fundamentally changed many aspects of the way we work.

And it won’t lock you outside in deep space. We promise.

  • Clinical data that exists, but isn’t available, might as well not exist at all.

It’s a bold statement, but it’s true. Read Hyland Healthcare expert Phil Wasson’s excellent advice to find out how your organization can ensure easy access to complete patient information.

  • In the latest edition of the 2 truths and 1 lie series, I touch the third rail of healthcare: Fax machines.

Check it out to learn why technology invented in 1843 may not be the best way to share sensitive patient information.

  • Our Day in the Life series continued this week, as well. Go-getter intern Amy Awadalla interviewed Anthony Maimone, a Software Development Manager at Hyland.

Anthony’s advice for people who want to break into the tech field? Always be learning. He took his own advice when he was having a hard time getting into tech. He decided to get a Masters in Artificial Intelligence, and hasn’t looked back since.

My favorite thing of the week: Iron(y)

  • I love Vancouver. I also love extreme irony. That’s why this story means everything to me.

A burglar breaks into an escape room, can’t get out, and calls 911.

The only way this could be better is if he was the guy police arrested a few weeks ago who has the word “Felon” tattooed on his forehead. Both true stories. Ridiculous, but true.

Have a great weekend everyone! And don’t let friggatriskaidekaphobia get the best of you!
