2022 has been a year like no other (something we feel like we’ve been saying for the last 3 years). We made major energy breakthroughs with new developments in fusion energy. We moved to allow hearing aids to be sold over the counter at lower prices ensuring access to hard of hearing and Deaf folks for years to come. And the monarch butterflies are coming back! We’re focusing on the positives here at Pixel Health. One of which is you, our readers. And this year you didn’t hold back in letting us know what healthcare IT topics were worth coming back to again and again. So, here is our list of the top Pixel Health Blogs of 2022.
When your smart thermostat fails, your home may get a little overheated. The breach of a security camera might result in a break in or a stolen package off the front porch. But failure of an Internet-connected heart monitor or the hacking of a device configured to remind an elderly patient to take their hypertension medicine could have far more serious or even fatal consequences.
There are those that call the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) the silver bullet for help in addressing runaway healthcare costs but the lack of strong industry-wide security, performance, and operational standards presents some serious challenges.
According to LinkedIn, nursing is the fifth-most in-demand job in the country and the American Nurses Association reported that more RN jobs would be available than any other job in the US in 2022. So why is the country amid a nursing staff crisis? A new report by Vocera, now a part of Stryker, cites a breakdown in communication as the primary issue.
On the heels of its quasi-national holiday, Prime Days, Amazon announced on Tuesday, July 26 that it is buying One Medical, a membership-based primary care practice with over 200 locations, for nearly $4 billion.
Amazon, who has been flirting with healthcare for some time, is now making its presence felt with brick and mortar primary care locations. The digital giant is putting a stake in the ground and how this will ultimately look is to be determined.
You can tell a lot about a company by the way they describe themselves. And when it comes to Value Added Resellers (VARs) of hardware and software, those descriptions separate the winners from the widget salesmen.
We conducted a highly unscientific survey of VARs large and small and almost without exception, the structure of their website tells you everything you need to know about their priorities.
- Lots of logos. See the parade of hardware and software products we represent.
- Engineering prowess beyond that of mortal men. We’re smart, you’re not, and that’s why you need us.
- Our prices are the lowest. Unless you can get it for less in which case, we’ll sharpen our pencil.
Each year Pixel Health analyzes the top 10 healthcare news sources across the web. Last year we were particularly focused on the range of articles each site had not only on the medicine side of healthcare but the patient experience side as well. These are the sites that made the cut.
