11th Hour, 11th Day, 11th Month: A Veterans Day Thank You

By Jeremy Snyder on Nov 10, 2017

You’ve probably once read that at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the fighting of WW1 ended in 1918. The significance of the sacrifice made in “The War to End All Wars” was apparent to all and this day became known as “Armistice Day,” on which we are to honor the service of all the veterans of that war. In 1954, it was renamed Veterans Day.

Guess Whose eSignature Solution MEDITECH Uses?

By Lindsey Keith on Nov 7, 2017

If your hospital is starting down the paperless forms path and considering adding electronic patient signatures (eSignature or eSig) into your technology mix, you’re probably going to hear several vendors say, “Lots of MEDITECH hospitals use our stuff.” All well and good, and likely quite true. But what if a vendor could make this claim, back it up and then tell you something else that’s pretty important: “MEDITECH uses our solution.”

By Lindsey Keith on Oct 31, 2017

If you had to name your five least favorite things to do at work, what would you say? We’re going to bet that “paperwork” was somewhere on your list. Printing forms, having patients fill them in and sign them, copying them, scanning, replacing old versions with new ones—the list of tasks goes on and on. We’ve had plenty of customers tell us that they used to feel like they were focusing more on pushing paper than on patient care and service. Until they started using eSignatures and eForms, that is.

By Chuck Demaree on Oct 12, 2017

How many times do we encounter challenging situations in our work or personal life and complain our way through them, because we perceive them as hard, painful or difficult? Pretty often, right? All you have to do is overhear a few conversations in a coffee shop, or scroll down your social media feed, to see how readily we complain about our latest troubles.

Rethinking Customer Relationships

By Chuck Demaree on Aug 22, 2017

Over the years, I’ve realized that I need to view many others as customers and treat them accordingly.

Embracing Differences and Maximizing Strengths

By Beth Adams on Aug 14, 2017

My husband and I have been married for over 38 years. Not all 13,870+ days have been blissful. (Wow, that sounds like a reeeaaaally long time, huh?) Actually, we get along really well considering how many little things we don’t have in common. He likes country music, I like rock and roll; he likes vanilla and I’m all about chocolate; he likes drama and real-life movies and I’m more into comedy and sci-fi. It makes you wonder, what can we agree on?

By Mark Johnston on Jul 24, 2017

If you’ve known me for a while, you’re likely familiar with a few core ideas that I use to orient my work and life—like the 4 Principles of Productivity I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.
