June 8, 2019 By Dave Marquard, WEMCO Tech Chair Curiosity has often driven me to action. In 1982 I purchased one of the worlds first portable computers, the Osborne 1. It weighed almost 25 pounds and didnt have an on-board battery. It had to be plugged into a wall outlet to power up and use. However, it was still classified as a portable computer because it could be hand-carried. The Osborne 1 shipped with a large bundle of software worth almost as much as the computer. That software included some of the most powerful and pioneering programs of the day such as D-Base2 for data sorting; SuperCal, an early spreadsheet, and WordStar, a leading word processor application that had a dominant market share that lasted until the mid-1980s. I was a young VP at a small welding equipment manufacturing company, which while a market leader in its small niche, could never seem to break out of a slow growth cycle. My new computer aided ability to process large amounts of

Beam me up, Scotty You are probably familiar with this iconic catchphrase that made its way into the popular culture from the science fiction television series Star Trek. It was pure fiction in those days. Today, with telepresence robots, technology allows us to beam up images of people, places and things that can save thousands of dollars for healthcare companies. Pay attention to this awesome technologythose who use it will have a huge competitive advantage over those who dont. Today atOxyGoand theApplied Companies, we use telepresence robots in our offices, plants, and even trade shows. We wonder how we worked before we had them. Telepresence robots allow our team members, wherever they are in the world, to attend important meetings, brainstorm, make decisions, develop new products or services, etc., as if they were there in person.

Technology continues to transform every industryand home healthcare is no exception. As new medical tech trends continue to emerge, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date on all of them. Here are a few of the most impactful trends to keep an eye on as fast-developing healthcare technology accelerates marketplace change. Hi-tech healthcare innovations that improve patients lives may be an opportunity for DMEs to further diversity their product offerings. Consider, for example, cash product sales related to diabetes that are now available and in the development pipeline. It has been estimated that 86% of all healthcare spending goes to patients with one or more chronic medical condition. At recent Medtrade shows, diabetic suppliesespecially continuous glucose monitoring devices (CGM)have drawn increased provider interest as cash sales items. These include glucose meters where competition appears to be fierce. There are more than 90 different types and brands available.

The big elephant in the room is when will insurance companies and Medicare reimbursement policies catch up with todays already available technology? To make health care more accessible for the 60 million residents of rural America,The Health Resources Services Administration(HRSA) funds programs that integrate and streamline existing rural health care institutions and aid in the recruitment and retention of physicians in rural hospitals and clinics. HRSAs telehealth program uses information technology to link isolated rural practitioners to medical institutions over great distances. HRSA defines telehealth as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration.
