Boston Marathon 2015

Boston-Marathon_5

Reporting:  Sam Sharon for Onset Technology Thankfully, the 2015 B.A.A Boston Marathon went smoothly. Supporters lined the entirety of 26.2-mile course, from Hopkinton to the Prudential Center. At the finish line, banks gave spectators free popcorn and cowbells; and on Heartbreak Hill, retail stores set up food buffets and giveaway stations. True to the New England spirit, even the weather didn’t stop the celebrations. And all across Massachusetts, the echo of “Boston Strong” could be heard.   But now, with the Tsarnaev trial coming to a close on the heels of this year’s Marathon, memories of the 2013 Boston bombings begin to resurface. Unlike before, the whole racecourse was now dotted with Boston Police officers, sheriffs, and even K-9 units on every block. There were over twenty security checkpoints throughout the course, and only clear plastic bags, and purses smaller than twelve inches, were allowed through without a thorough search. The Copley […] Read more »

How Teamwork, Trust & Improved Communication Reduce Mistakes in the Emergency Room

Emergency Room

Better ER Communication Article Excerpt Courtesy of: Fierce Healthcare & Ilene MacDonald It’s so easy to think you’ve communicated a message clearly. After all, you understand the instructions, so it only stands to reason that the person receiving them must also understand what you meant. And though most misunderstandings can be cleared up quickly in everyday situations, studies show that they pose a significant danger for patients when signals get crossed. In fact, an estimated 80 percent of the most serious medical errors in hospitals are linked to miscommunications. The collection of patient-reported data at a health system is often highly fragmented and a burden to patients, staff and physicians alike. It can lead to inaccurate data, low completion rates, missed diagnoses, and high cost. This exciting webinar will discuss how to improve and optimize patient data collection to dramatically increase patient engagement. To combat miscommunication in the emergency room, one […] Read more »

Pager Service Disruption Worries Quebec’s Rural Communities

Emergency responder woman

Telus announced that it is canceling its pager service across Canada, effective March 31, 2015. This is cause for worry amongst some residents of Quebec’s rural communities according to CBC News. Several anglophone coastline villages near Labrador, on Quebec’s Lower North Shore, do not have cellphone service. They rely on pagers to reach health-care workers and emergency responders. Without a pager system, according to Rowsell Roberts, volunteer firefighters and health-care workers would have to wait by the phone at home. Another group recommend using two-way radios — a 1950’s technology attempting to cure 21st century urgent messaging needs. Pagers Are Obsolete Fewer and fewer people are using pagers – the devices you hold in your hand – as time goes on. The number of pagers in use has been plummeting each year since their height in the mid-1990s. Nonetheless, as of 2013, about 161,500 Canadians still had paging service subscriptions, according […] Read more »

Can Smartphones Can Help You Eat Better?

healthy foods

A smartphone is great for calculating your net worth, listening to music, and taking photos. But did you know that a smartphone is also great for helping you eat better? Well, that’s what 82 percent of respondents believe, according to a recent survey. That stat comes from food ethnographer June Jo Lee, who specializes in cultural analysis, and who also recently conducted a survey at a whole grains food conference in Boston. Smartphones have the ability to help increase food literacy – just by doing a Siri or Google search. Many social researchers believe it is also influencing not only what millennials think, but what they eat. The real question is, do they end up eating better and healthier or do they just think they are eating better and healthier. It’s hard to know for sure — because the data is all self-reported. One thing, however, is clear — access to […] Read more »

How Smartphones and Digital Screens Transform Minds

Baby reading a tablet

Are You Hard-Wired? Neuroscientists warn that people who use smartphones and digital devices for reading seem to be developing “digital brains”. These online readers are developing new circuits designed for skimming through a flood of information online and skipping around through hyperlinked pages. This new alternative way of reading appears to be at odds with the traditional linear print reading circuitry developed over the past several thousands of years — from the birth of Egyptian hieroglyphics to the emergence of the Gutenberg press. Many believe that online reading is not only transforming how we read, but our minds as well. Online readers skim, pick out key words, and organizing their eye movements to generate the most information at the highest speed. And, they do this at a rate too fast to ingest real meaning. The question is, “Are we developing Twitter brains?” If cable TV news gave the world the sound […] Read more »

The answer is #5 – the average outage incident in a health care environment costs $690,000, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute & Emerson Network Power. Large enterprise groups, according to the study, may incur costs exceeding $1.74 million per incident. The Cost of the Outage Alone is Only Part of the Picture: Today, the healthcare industry is dependent on data for clinical metrics, patient care, billing, reporting, and more. Server downtime is not only costly, but can be detrimental to daily operations. Fines associated with each incident can increase the cost substantially, depending on a number of factors such as the length of data downtime and the […] Read more »

Remembering Pagers or “How to Say I Love You in Three 3’s”

Priority Messaging Healthcare - OnPage - Smartphone Pager Replacement

When Pagers Were King. A couple of decades ago, in its heyday, pagers were unquestionably “The Next Big Thing” – a sleek, hi-tech, futuristic communication device. If you really needed to get in touch – send a page! The buzzing-vibrating sound was sure to get the attention of whoever you sent the page, and they would certainly respond. We’ll, that was the idea, but it really didn’t play out that way. Here’s why: First: You really never knew if they got the page, which is kind of a drag if the page was important. Back then, in the Pager Age (P.A.), there was no such thing as message receipt, message read conformation, or an audit trail. Second: Response time was, by today’s standard, LONG!  But, people really didn’t expect immediacy back then. Of course, that wasn’t really a problem. You could always ask them if they got the page tomorrow –  if […] Read more »

Email & SMS: NOT Good Enough For IT Monitoring

networkmonitoring

Are you an IT Administrator staring at your phone’s screen all day waiting for an email or text?  Have you ever missed a CRITICAL email or text because it didn’t grab your attention? Using email and SMS for network alerts has been a widely used practice since the early 90’s, but is not an effective and efficient way of receiving these kinds of CRITICAL alerts.  Alert notifications are a crucial part of your system monitoring. Missing even one single email or text can result in downtime which can also result in revenue loss, reputation damage, and potential customer defections. System monitoring without a noticeable alert is like getting a Pizza delivered to your building but not knowing when, so unless you sit there by the lobby waiting for that Pizza, by the time you find the Pizza it’s stale and cold. OnPage helps to eliminate this process so that you can receive your […] Read more »

Network Monitoring: Is Email & SMS Good Enough?

email & Sms

Are you an IT Administrator staring at your phone’s screen all day waiting for an email or text?  Have you ever missed a CRITICAL email or text because it didn’t grab your attention? Using email and SMS for network alerts has been a widely used practice since the early 90’s, but is not an effective and efficient way of receiving these kinds of CRITICAL alerts.  Alert notifications are a crucial part of your system monitoring. Missing even one single email or text can result in downtime which can also result in revenue loss, reputation damage, and potential customer defections. System monitoring without a noticeable alert is like getting a Pizza delivered to your building but not knowing when, so unless you sit there by the lobby waiting for that Pizza, by the time you find the Pizza it’s stale and cold. OnPage helps to eliminate this process so that you can receive your […] Read more »

A recent study completed by KLAS Research shows that health care providers are concerned about security and safety in the ever increasing BYOD mobile healthcare environment.
