Future-Proofing Your CC&C Implementation

Putting our internal plans in place for 2018 got me thinking about what is on the minds of prospective Clinical Communication and Collaboration clients for the year ahead. So, I asked the following question on a recent prospective client visit: “Since you’re planning for a CC&C project in 2018, what’s keeping you awake at night […]

On Tuesday, January 30, 2018 during the 4th Quarter Earnings call for Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Milton Johnson, the corporation’s CEO, announced that HCA is buying 100,000 iPhones.

Trendspotting: CES 2018

I’d like to take an intermission from our posts on Clinical Communication & Collaboration and provide some trend-spotting on technology.

Happy New Year!

Our blog has been quiet, so my first resolution for 2017 is: “Get writing!” To fulfill my promise, I thought that I would start off the New Year talking about our big news from last fall – namely, becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of HCA.
