The T word

October 12, 2020Liz Beaulieu, Editor

It wasn't intentional, but nearly every session at the virtual HME News Business Summit in September stressed the importance of providers leveraging technology to not only improve care but also make their businesses more efficient and profitable. Sure, technology creeps up at the Summit every year and it's often the focus of a session or two, but never has it so dominated our entire event.

E-prescribing: Show them the way

September 3, 2019David Gelbard

A. In speaking with many caregivers and with many clinicians, it is clear that many can be hesitant about embracing new technology, especially ones that involve sharing their own personal information. Rightfully so, clinicians are protective about what information is shared with others. They devote their lives to helping others and don't want to feel taken advantage of.

E-prescribing: Understand technology at hand

July 25, 2019David Gelbard

A. Technology but it can sometimes be overwhelming to manage all of the different workflows that come with embracing new technologies. Sometimes, even if a new tool seems useful, the headache of managing all of the different applications can negate the tool's benefits.

E-prescribing: Eliminate guessing

May 31, 2019David Gelbard

A. In 2019, consumers have never had more transparency and efficiency when ordering items in their everyday lives. You know when those shoes you ordered on Amazon will be delivered, when the Uber driver will pick you up, and you'll get an alert from Delta if your flight is delayed. But for some reason, a patient isn't given the same basic level of transparency for the equipment they desperately need, in today's healthcare world.Currently, most caregivers still order medical equipment for patients...
