Hospitalist Perspectives: Logic as Bias

As I shared before, I really have gotten out of the business of predicting things.  Well, I thought I had.  But now I find myself being surprised by some things, which means I must have had some internal predictions that I wasn’t aware of. I find myself surprised that all of the major sports have been playing, and we haven’t…

Small sinks – what’s with that?

I guess it’s time to talk about product design again.  Please, when you make a new product (or a new version of an old product), please keep your users in mind.  Think about and understand how they’re supposed to use your product, and make sure it meets their needs.  As an example, (and I realize that this may not be…

In the year 2000: mobile computing architects meet

As medaptus celebrates its 20th anniversary and looks back at our evolution over time, we thought it would be interesting to hear from some of our employees that have been here the longest. Two of our developers, Tim McCoy and Mark Brown, have actually been with the company the full twenty years! Tim and Mark both work out of the medaptus Raleigh,…

20 Years of Medicine

There have been a lot of jokes about how awful a year 2020 has been, with a pandemic, quarantines, police violence, social unrest, and even invasive murder hornets.  However, it’s also the 20th anniversary of the founding of medaptus.  While I wasn’t here from the beginning, I’ve been with medaptus for almost ten years, and have seen a lot of…

Two decades of helping those who heal

For any health information technology start up to last 20 years in a competitive arena with high stakes outcomes, it’s more than luck. It takes vision, commitment, agility, and passion. Those drivers (and the drivers of those drivers – our employees) are what have enabled medaptus to seamlessly transform from a founder of the Mobile Health 1.0 movement (give one…

Software Design That is Intuitive Versus Prohibitive

I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus, but I need to take a minute to talk about some glitchy things that as a physician technologist, really make me crazy. Since I work at several different hospitals as a hospitalist, we can avoid naming names.  At one facility, there are multiple IT-related problems that are not being addressed despite…

Hospitalist perspective: on being a patient

So, I had what felt like a unique experience today:  I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned.  Now this isn’t unique because I’d never done it before (thankfully no dental issues) – it was my first real experience as a patient in the COVID-19 era.  I got just the smallest taste of what my patients are experiencing.…

Hospitalist perspective: I wonder what my dog thinks. . .

In my normal, everyday life, I live with my wife, two kids, and my mother-in-law.  She’s in great health without significant comorbidities, however, I’d be very concerned about her outcome if she picked up COVID-19.  As a practicing hospitalist I’ve been taking care of lots of patients who are sick with COVID-19, and given my exposures, it didn’t make sense…
