The weekly recap: June 1

June. Yep, June. Time to see synchronous fireflies in the Smoky Mountains.

They say it doesn’t happen until next weekend. They also say the lottery to view the fireflies is closed. But I know a secret …

Anyway, here’s how Hyland lit up the sky this week.

  • Critical defects are “the errors that make a mortgage loan uninsurable or ineligible for sale in the secondary market,” according to National Mortgage News.

And these errors are only increasing.

That’s why it’s time to graduate from using “stare and compare” methods for mortgage lending processes, writes Michelle Shapiro. By leveraging an intelligent capture solution with optical character recognition (OCR) and extraction technology, lenders can minimize the number of human touch points in loan processes, increase the accuracy of data, and avoid critical defects.

  • Encounter-based images often become what Gartner defines as “dark” or “rogue” data – information assets organizations collect, process, and store during regular business activities, but fail to use for other purposes.

But with PACSgear Image Link Encounter Workflow, healthcare providers can eliminate the rogue data that often results from ad-hoc departmental workflows. Furthermore, notes Lyle McMillin, the solution helps health systems manage protected health information (PHI), protect patient confidentiality, and reduce organizational risk.

  • The solution McMillin refers to above is one of two enterprise imaging solutions Hyland Healthcare released this week that help providers capture, integrate, and share documents and media across departments and organizations.

NilRead release 4.3 builds on the foundation of providing advanced viewing capabilities through a zero-footprint viewer. This release of NilRead provides improvements to the user experience and enhancements like extended DICOM-ECG support, support for radiation therapy treatment plans, and advanced monitoring tools.

My favorite thing this week

  • Cheese rolling. It’s a thing. A dangerous thing.

It’s like, “Pack a decade’s worth of wipeouts into an afternoon!”

Seriously. This week, people flung themselves down what one participant referred to as a “diabolical hill” while chasing cheese. My neck hurts just watching them. And you can find a plethora of videos on social media to amuse yourself all day long.

Meanwhile, the cheese can apparently reach 70 miles per hour! Even if you’re not participating, if a 9-pound round of Double Gloucester hurtling down a hill at 70 mph nails you, you’re going to feel it.

Have a great weekend everyone! And please, if there’s a hill and cheese involved, wear a helmet.
