That time of year


If you’re like me and you’re in Maine, you look out your window these days and feel rejuvenated. The sun is out more, the air is warmer, the grass is greener and there are small signs that the plants that have been blanketed in snow for months are, indeed, alive.


It’s also around this time of year that my email inbox is over-flowing, my day planner is full of chicken scratch, my desk is buried in paper and my to-do list looks like I haven’t done a thing in three weeks because there’s so much to do it can’t all possibly get done.


Because we’re hustling to get applications for our annual HME Excellence Awards and we’re hustling to get participants for our annual Financial Benchmark Survey, and we’re finalizing the educational program for our HME News Business Summit. This, amidst the usual responsibilities of issues and HME Newswires and webcasts.

Yes, it’s that time of year when I use this blog as a public service announcement.

So please apply for an HME Excellence Award—it’s a great way to take stock of where your company has been and where it’s headed.

Please participate in our Financial Benchmark Survey—with all the talk of the importance of data in every part of health care, here’s your chance to get it specifically for your line of business.

And please check out the educational program for this year’s HME News Business Summit, which will be posted to next week—where else are you going to get education on healthcare delivery models, connected health, disrupters and more.

With this blog scratched off my to-do list, I’m going out to enjoy some of that sun.
