The Next Big Thing in Healthcare is Next Wave Connect

The Next Big Thing in Healthcare is Next Wave Connect

If you’re looking for a place to connect with other healthcare professionals to collaborate to solve healthcare challenges that you and your healthcare organization are struggling with, then Next Wave Connect is the answer.

As the title states, I wholeheartedly believe that Next Wave Connect will be the next big thing in healthcare. It’s time to stop working in silos and get together to solve these problems. It saves time, it saves money, and ultimately, it saves lives.

Google Chromecast Review: Small Price – Big Value

Admittedly, I am not as gushing as many of the Apple fan girls and boys, but I totally dig my iPhone, iPad, and even my Apple TV. But these are just a few examples of how much we full on Nerdgasm over all things Apple. So when a product is released that throws a beat down on one our Apple products we figured we owe it to you to let you know. For this very reason, and well, because it’s awesome and CHEAP, we wanted to provide you with a Google Chromecast review take some time to tell you why Chromecast may be a better option than Apple TV.

The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology: The Book

The Nerdy Nurse's Guide to Technology Book

The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology provides the tools nurses need to improve their practices, further their careers, and solidify themselves as assets to their employers. Written with humor and easily digestible sections of information, this reference guide supplies nurses with the practical application tools they need to embrace technology and be successful.

Technology should be seen and used as an aide to delivering nursing care. If it is a barrier, then we need to break down those walls and make it useful for the care you give. Technology, like most things in life, becomes what you make of it. If you make it difficult and useless, then it will be difficult and useless. But if you make it prominent and valuable, then you might find that you not only experience increased satisfaction in your job performance but are a happier nurse overall.

Nurse of the Year [Video] [Parody]

Nursing is very rewarding to most of us, but it’s good fun to laugh at a few nursing related jokes that are on the cynical side.

Besides, who there isn’t near enough nurse humor on the internet and there certainly aren’t enough funny nurse videos.

Raising The Salary for Nurses Across the Board

Recently I posted about the pros and cons working as a salaried nurse verses hourly. Kevin Ross, of Innovative Nurse, has responded in a youtube video but has shifted the focus of the discussion to the wages of nurses in general. So let’s continue the conversation.

Kevin is a nurse consultant and was surprised after a discussion with another nurse hen he learned what the average pay for nurses is currently. And let me be completely honest when I say that I think nurses are reimburses well, compared to many other jobs I’ve done, but there is always room for improvement.

The Meaning Use Rap [Video] and a Little Nerdy Info about HIEs

If you work in healthcare it is pretty likely that you’ve heard the term “Meaningful Use.” While many find it to be much more annoying than beneficial, I find that many people actually do not have any idea what it means.

The “Meaning Yoose Rap” does a great job of giving a general idea of what meaningful use is, what it does for patients, and how providers can benefit from implementing.

iOS 6 Maps Show Multiple Dimensions [Parody]

iOS 6 iphone 5 maps

Some people have complained that the maps in iOS 6 are inaccurate. If you’re are using your iPhone integrated maps feature, you might be finding yourself lost. Have no fear. “Apple” has decided to set the record straight in this parody video.

It’s not that the maps in iOS 6 are inaccurate, they just show dimensions we don’t have access to.

Amazon Prime App is Finally Available on iPad!

I have be longing for an Amazon Prime app for ages. Now I feel the Apple TV was a very sound investment since I can fully utilize my actual TV for all my on demand movie services. Especially since Apple TV just got the Hulu App. Now, at least for the time being, I can watch Amazon Prime on the TV with mirroring. I know that it could be argued that there are other devices that already do this like Roku, but I’m a fan of the simplicity of most Apple products. (I say most, because unfortunately my Macbook Pro experience was less than exceptional.)

Unforgettable Family Fun at Rocky Branch Railroad and Old West Ghost Town

2012-07-21-16.18.39_thumb.jpg

Recently we made a trip to the Rocky Branch Railroad and Ghost Town.

We had family come to town and didn’t want to be the old bumps on the logs we normally are. Since my husband and I had been talking about taking Ty to a nearby old west ghost, we figured this would be a great time. It was also a great thing to take Pappy and our niece and nephew to.

The price of admission was very reasonable compared to many of the other attractions we attended during the week (including Zoo Atlanta, The Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coke, and The Fernbank Museum). For $10 you got a hay ride, a trip on the train, alligator exhibit, an 1880’s Variety Show, a gun slinging show and even robbed at gunpoint by train robbers (oh my!).
