SCOTUS decision yields opportunity, demands responsibility

pointer By Phil Colpas, Managing Editor, September, 2012
Unsuccessful in my attempts to locate “The Supreme Court of the United States 2012 Healthcare Decision for Dummies,” and having read umpteen analyses of the landmark case from both conservative and liberal fronts, I must return to my earlier, overly simplified conclusion: SCOTUS upholding the Affordable Care Act is a huge boon to healthcare IT vendors of all ilk. Because after all is said and done, more customers mean more opportunities to sell solutions.

The Luddite

pointer By Ken Anderberg, Publisher/Editorial Director, March, 2010
I'm known as something of a Luddite to friends and co-workers — a strange admission for the editorial director of a technology magazine — but true to some extent. I don't have a cell phone and I don't have time during my busy day to visit social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter. Quite frankly, I find those venues huge time-consumption monsters and of little value at work or play.

The pain of change

pointer By Ken Anderberg, Publisher/Editorial Director, March, 2010

Changing an organization's processes usually is a difficult task. People are used to the way "things have always been done" and often are reluctant to try something new — such as accepting technology solutions they are unfamiliar with. It's called "human nature" and a not-unexpected response when the subject of electronic medical records (EMR) is broached.

Staunch objections to EMRs generally have centered on either lost productivity or costs, mostly the latter. The HITECH Act addresses the cost issue by providing billions of dollars for electronic records implementations, but getting $44,000 back from the feds for a system that might cost a physician's office $150,000 does not necessarily create strong demand to move from paper to electronic records. Now, however, a number of EMR vendors and several large hospital systems are lending a hand.

A long Good-bye

pointer By Ken Anderberg, Publisher/Editorial Director, February, 2010
Technology has obviously meant a great deal to the practice of medicine. A visit to one of today's modern hospitals or medical practices demonstrates the full array of technology solutions that enhance the delivery of healthcare services. That technology can keep us alive — even perhaps longer than justified.

I know a man who recently saw most of his internal organs completely shut down. His kidneys and liver failed. His lungs stopped working.
