    Not All Internet Connections are Created Equal

    There are several types of internet connections out there. We’ve got lightning fast as well as the slow and not-so-steady. One thing is for sure: no connection is like another.

    Mac vs. PC: Which side are you on?

    As the war between Apple-ites and PC-ers rages on, it’s easy to get caught in the middle. If you’ve already put your stake in the ground, no snarky web images, clever TV commercials, or humorous print ads are going to sway you. But if you’re a computer newbie or looking for a change, the competing messages can be more than a little overwhelming.

    Because our focus for May is my forte—technology—I thought I’d take the writing reins for this month. I’m sure many of you know the story of WebPT; but for those of you who don’t, it all started back in the summer of 2006 when Heidi —who was running a large sport clinic here in Arizona—asked me to help her find an EMR system. At that time, I’d been in the software field for 15 years and had …

    The Future of Plugged In Healthcare

    Have you been captivated by the evolution of patient-centric health? The broader scope of eHealth, mHealth, and digital health (in its beginning stages) is exciting to watch. However, the concept of a truly “plugged in” healthcare system is far from reality. Still, groups like the Center for Connected Health are pushing the industry forward. Pioneering founder, Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, and his center are driving the tech-enabled, patient-centric vision. Recently, Discovery.com featured Dr. Kvedar, along with the …

The US Department of Health and Human Services has released a report on HIPAA violations last year. Michael Koploy from Software Advice shared this data with …
