We are following closely Hi-Tech news and updates. Ryan Locke does a fantastic job of giving both the background and current status of HITECH rates for 3rd party requestors. Check it out here: HITECH: What’s Going On Now and When Can Use it Again?. According to Locke “Despite corporate pressure, the federal government wants medical records to be cheap and easy to access.

Teaching new team members your office tech can be a little overwhelming. RayNa recently brought on a new team member and she was struggling a bit with the current layout of our project management tools. Her brain needed a calendar layout of projects and tasks that wasn’t available in our base package. But, the discussion opened the door for us to re-visit and explore new features with each of our tech tools. Don’t let new features and overall program updates hold your office back or feel like a disruption. Chances are there is an existing feature, add-on, power-up or integration that meets your needs without installing a brand new piece of tech.
