Improving Health Services for Risk-Prone Industries

For those of us who live most of our lives in relative safety – who eat, sleep, work, and travel in the comfort of places familiar and safe to us – it can be all too easy to take our healthcare plans for granted.

Integrating Telemonitoring Into Established Health Systems

For healthcare organizations with long histories and even longer patient lists, the prospect of revamping their entire health system can seem ridiculous.

Around the world, [...]

Getting Ahead of Diseases by Out-Thinking Them

Diseases are intelligent. They change, mutate, and develop new strategies to outsmart our medications. They adapt to resist treatments. And, because diseases tend to evolve faster than we can create new solutions for addressing them, the advantage, historically, does not fall in our favor. Getting ahead of diseases continues to be an uphill battle for the men and women who [...]

Reinforcing Hospital Care Through Telehealth

Telehealth is based in the understanding that the relationship between patients and caregivers – as well as the relationship between patients and their individual healthcare plans – must be strengthened to improve health outcomes.

And, though telehealth has transformed the way [...]

Bolstering Satisfaction Through At-Home Care

As technological advancements in medicine and healthcare continue to expand, the disconnect between doctors, nurses, and patients becomes ever larger. However, with the advent of telehealth, personal smart devices, and portable medical technologies, patients and organizations alike are being granted more freedom to customize their healthcare experience – which enhances, rather than detracts from, patient satisfaction. In fact, as new [...]

Bringing the Hospital Home

How Patient Education Can Improve Healthcare

When most people consider the things that regularly and negatively impact the healthcare system, they tend to focus on areas outside the patient’s control: high costs, overcrowded hospitals, insufficient technologies, medical malpractice, and so on. What is rarely considered is the role the patient plays in their own care and the understated power they have over improving their wellness and [...]
