In a recent post by Datalogic ADC, they discussed the question of, should antimicrobial devices be mandatory in healthcare?

Infographic: Mobile Technology in Healthcare

by Nathan Lord September 4, 2012 Healthcare

Recently, as I’ve been known to do on occasion, I did a Google search for “healthcare infographic.” I’m a visual  kind of guy, and I like the concept behind an infographic, along with the information that goes with it. And, since healthcare is one confusing vertical, I figure simplifying the message with pictures might help. […]

While this is […]

Recently, our friends at Healthcare Technology Online released their “Community Hospital Health IT Road Map” edition containing great information specific to smaller market healthcare facilities.

Mobile Devices in Healthcare: How is the money being spent?

by Nathan Lord November 17, 2011 Healthcare

Typically I like to track down a good infographic, or an article with a lot of graphs and pictures, because I’m a pretty visual learner (which is the professional way of saying I don’t like to read). So I pretty regularly go search the web for different healthcare topics trying to find something that dumbs […]
