How Remote Monitoring Can Help Improve Care for Chronic-Disease Patients
HealthTech Magazine | Technology Solutions That Drive Healthcare
by Dr. Matthew Else

As clinicians know, addressing the needs of patients living with chronic conditions, such as heart failure, Type 2 diabetes or hypertension, places a high level of strain on primary care providers and health systems. Although these patients require ongoing monitoring and regular check-ins to manage their conditions and help keep them out of the hospital, we typically see them in clinic only once or twice per year. That is what interested me recently when I decided to recommend a new remote patient monitoring program. Utica Park Clinic in Tulsa, Okla., where I am a practicing family physician ..read more

How to Leverage Federal Grant Programs in Newly Defined Rural Communities
HealthTech Magazine | Technology Solutions That Drive Healthcare
by Chris Popielski, Curtiss Strietelmeier

Growth in the U.S. population and changes in its demographics over the past 40 years have led to a disparity in care access. In 1980, 740 counties were considered “metro” areas while approximately 2,400 counties were considered “nonmetro.” That balance has now shifted; as of 2020, there are more than 1,250 metro counties and fewer than 2,000 nonmetro counties. This reduction of the rural population, combined with a challenging payer mix, is leading to economic hardship and hospital closures in rural areas. According to a recent report from Chartis, 141 rural hospitals have closed since 2010 ..read more

It is no secret that healthcare IT teams are overburdened, short-staffed and under increasing pressure to ensure data security and privacy, compliance and availability of critical services. Amid these challenges, security orchestration, automation and response solutions can reduce the need to carry out manual, time-intensive tasks, freeing staff to focus on mission-critical work. However, there is still uncertainty about how SOAR solutions work, suspicion that they may increase workloads and confusion about what differentiates them from seemingly similar security tools. Let’s take a look at ..read more
