  • Blog Post: Doctors write their own prescription for healthcare IT

  • Blog Post: Big Healthcare Savings from Surprisingly Simple Solutions

    Even if you work in a so-called “most wired” American healthcare facility, I guarantee if you look around you’ll still find lots of paper forms and processes.

    As I was exiting Consumer Health World in Washington, D.C., to catch my plane back to Seattle a few weeks ago, Peter Cervieri who serves as Director of Business Development for New York based ScribeMedia / ScribeStudio grabbed me for an ambush interview.
