We tend to associate Millennials with the proliferation of technology; however, all the key technology improvements that we are witnessing today were effectively developed during the life of the trailing edge Baby Boomers (1956 to 1966). We the “trailing-edge” are the technology generation.
Our children, Millennials, have taken to technology and the creation of applications, at a ferocious rate. Few have used, let alone remember, the typewriter; they are more familiar with the computer keyboard introduced while in grade school.
These Millennials are starting to enter the healthcare system en masse. The leading edge of the Millennials today are 37 years old. They don’t function well without technology and as they enter healthcare, along with their parent’s high healthcare consumption years, healthcare is facing an inflection point and technology is the only answer.
We see Millennials beginning to question everything… I suppose you might say that we taught them right! Millennials are used to sharing their profile information across multiple platforms by simply entering a password and clicking a button. For them, filling out a form in longhand is a foreign concept, though we do it at nearly every visit to a physician.
According to a recent report on Health Care IT News, The US Department of Veteran Affairs will shift to a commercial electronic health records (EHR) systems, moving away from the VistA system that it had previously developed in-house.
VistA had been developed to initially to serve both the VA and the U.S. Department of Defense, however last year it was confirmed that each organisation would develop their own system. The VA has, since that point, struggled to develop a system adequate for their needs, thus the focus towards 3rd party commercially-available solutions.
VA Secretary David Shulkin, MD, said “I’ve come to the conclusion that VA building its own software products and doing its own software development inside is not a good way to pursue this. We need to move toward commercially-tested products.
This is potentially good news for Grace Century’s EHR project partner The Quantum Group. Quantum CEO Noel Guillama said “The industry about to make a huge leap. We are ready to jump in- we can compete, not for this but for doctors and MSO/ACO looking for real solutions”

What could be a better way of securing data rather than a heartbeat? A scientific research team from the Binghamton University believe that heart’s electrical pattern may be used as an encryption key for electronic records.
Currently the complexity and cost of present encryption tools do not allow the full implementation of such data into telemedicine field and mobile healthcare systems.

How many of us ever had feelings of lethargy and laziness regarding visiting doctor when feeling sick? Generally, this is a first-world problem for the majority of Americans living in big cities and their suburbs, but what if the closest hospital is located a long distance away?
In the near future, the solution could be only couple of clicks away. Thanks to telehealth technology, patients and doctors will be permanently linked through computers and mobile devices. Many researchers feel that this technology will redefine the entire healthcare industry over the next decade.
The implementation of new technologies often presents big challenges: its not easy to switch large, complicated systems from one methodology to another in a short time. Electronic Health Records is no exception – if it was easy to implement, it would have been done decades ago. Most of today’s corner grocery stores have more advanced electronic records than most hospitals do.
