Paper health records lead to inefficiencies and big mistakes

There used to be a day you would go to the doctor when you were sick. The doctor would see you, examine and diagnose you, write out a prescription, hand it to you and send you on your way. If your doctor happened to be really busy and got distracted maybe he or she forgot that you had an allergy to something like penicillin and then wrote a prescription for something with it in it.

Of course, you don’t realize there is something wrong until you get the prescription back from the pharmacy and pull out the bottle to take a pill. It could be that the smell is overpowering or the color is distinctive. You know you are allergic and cannot have it and you wonder “how did this ever happen?” The reality is that this happens all the time. The rate at which this occurs used to be a lot higher, but it still happens. Also, it’s not limited to just doctor visits. It happens in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, doctor’s offices, pharmacies and in the home. Paper medical records are archaic, disconnected and not convenient for sharing information.

New survey data shows the clock is ticking for
businesses to shift to a digital organization.
Cisco Services wants to help them get there.

About a year ago, Cisco embarked on a new branding campaign, telling its customers there’s “Never Been A Better Time” to become a digital organization and create new experiences for employees and customers. However, the path to becoming digital may not be that obvious, as we are connecting more things to our network, costs are escalating, the skills gap is widening, and IT is becoming more dynamic and distributed.

Cisco’s Red Dot award roll underscores the company’s
attention to detail and validates their approach to
providing a delightfully simple user experience.

Following on its Best of Enterprise Connect 2017 win for the Spark Board 55, Cisco has earned recognition from Red Dot, receiving the “Best of the Best” award for the product’s “extraordinary, innovative design.”

While this year’s winners include many well-known consumer brands such as Bose, Apple, Sony, and GoPro, Cisco’s wins stand out to me as particularly interesting, indicative of the tremendous success the company’s Collaboration business unit has had in recent years. In total, Cisco received five Red Dot awards (the four other awards being one tier down from the Best of the Best), for its recently announced Room Kit (see, “Cisco Beefs Up Spark Ecosystem“) and other Cisco Spark products.

For those who haven’t seen it, there’s a lot to love about the newest phone from Samsung. Whether it’s the new Infinity Display that seems to go on forever, the DEX docking station that turns your phone into a desktop computer, the incredible Virtual Reality experience, or the rapid wireless charging that replenishes your phone’s battery in minutes, it’s easy to see why the Samsung Galaxy S8 and 8+ will be two of the hottest devices this year.

I’ve admittedly had occasional dalliances with Samsung, yet I always come back to the Apple iPhone. While the rumors associated with the iPhone 8 sound incredible, It’s hard to argue with the growing belief that Samsung, with the Galaxy S8, has finally leapfrogged Apple— offering the best mobile phone on the market. In fact, after evaluating the Samsung Galaxy S8, Zach Epstein from BGR wrote that while he’s waiting for the iPhone 8 to be released, “Using my iPhone for the next 6 months is really going to suck.” (Click here for the full article).

Why do people stay with the iPhone instead of upgrading to a superior phone?
