The weekly recap: June 15

I came across a fun quote this week from sales expert and “mindset coach” Michael Althsuler:

The bad news is, time flies.

The good news is, you’re the pilot.

So set your bearings – do pilots set bearings? – for fun, because the weekend is here. But before you go, check out what we were up to this week.

The Hyland Blog

  • Hyland has gone to the dogs!

Actually, the dogs came to Hyland. Read Jennifer Mangino’s blog post to hear more about how some extremely adoptable dogs came to visit the first Hyland Food Truck Frenzy of summer 2018.

  • Did you know there are now healthcare apps for Amazon’s Alexa? It’s true.

Check out Laura Pietromica’s post to find out how using digital assistants to help us manage our healthcare is going to change the game.

  • At the recent Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2018 Annual Meeting, Hyland Healthcare expert Phil Wasson attended a presentation on whether or not enterprise imaging should be a high-level strategy within a healthcare delivery organization.

The answer is yes. In fact, without governance strategies that clearly outline how traditional imaging departments should work together with IT, healthcare organizations compromise enterprise imaging initiatives at the outset.

  • Who is your customer? It might be harder to answer than you think, according to Scott Magers.

In healthcare, you just might be forgetting that your customers include people like referral sources, insurance providers, and payers – in addition to your patients. That’s why you need to drive the best customer service possible with innovative tools like business process management automation. Not only will it help you improve collaboration and care coordination, it will help you improve patient satisfaction, which is what it’s all about.

  • Don’t let the word “intern” ever stop you from using your talents and making a difference, says Adeleine Whitten. And as a successful intern at Hyland, she should know.

Read her post to find out how to use an internship as the first step in your journey, helping you reach your ultimate destination.

My favorite thing of the week

The aircraft is an incredible 64-feet long and weighs nearly 1,500 pounds. When organizers saw the behemoth hanging from a crane as they prepared to launch it, they reconsidered. You know, because it weighs almost a ton, and paper airplanes aren’t exactly known for their accuracy. So the museum wants to create a new Guinness World Record category for the world’s largest paper airplane artwork or sculpture while it figures out the safest way to see if the plane can actually fly.

If you attend the attempted flight, be prepared to flee, scatter, or possibly even scamper.

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend everyone!
