A secret shopper’s perspectives on the EHR and clinical workflow

As someone who has practiced medicine using both paper and electronic records, and someone who’s been focused on the health tech scene for the past 20 years, you might think I’ve seen it all.

Nordics at the forefront of extending the reach of virtual healthcare

Having visited the Nordic countries of Europe many times over the last 13 years, it comes as no surprise to me that telemedicine is at the forefront of regional initiatives to improve healthcare access and delivery.This is particularly true in rural areas of the Nordics where the nearest hospital or clinic may be hours away. I have fond memories…
